Symptoms of Gum Disease

Those who are aware of teeth ailments should always brush their teeth at least twice a day and floss. If you get into the habit of not brushing, you could start to experience symptoms of gum disease, and it is important to see a dentist to help clean and check your teeth. When you do go to a dentist, you need to make sure you listen to everything he says after cleaning your teeth. The dentist might tell you that you are not brushing enough or that you haven’t been brushing the right way and that is when you may be experiencing those symptoms of gum disease.

Some people who have Gingivitis, which is a mild form of gum disease, should begin by brushing and flossing more often with a new kind of Crest tooth paste that helps restore the gums. That way the symptoms may start to go away, and you won’t have to keep relying on the dentist to clean your teeth that you only see once a year, for the most people go to see a dentist is twice a year.

To be sure you do not have gum disease, you should research some of the symptoms that you may be experiencing, such as a build up of plaque, bleeding of the gums, and tooth decay. If you are experiencing any of those symptoms, you should ask the dentist what dental tools are available to help clean your teeth, as I mentioned the new kind of tooth paste that can heal the tissue.

One way to help prevent gum disease would be to refrain from too much sugar in your food and drinks, not just by eating the right food but through avoiding the wrong food. If you are used to drinking coke or Pepsi on a regular basis, you should try to cut down on the pop or try to drink diet pop for a change. Since sugar is the number one cause of tooth decay and gum disease, try eating less desert food (like cake and ice cream) and other kinds of food that contain sugar to keep the acid away from your teeth and gums. Sometimes even fruit can contain sugar in it, although it is healthy for the rest of the body. Try to eat more meat and vegetables instead of cookies and candy bars, and if it is too much to carry for your body fat and cholesterol level, you should try eating meat without all of the bread. The more you eat meat with a fork and knife the healthier you’ll be off than to eat sandwiches from fast food restaurants. Fast food restaurants often carry food filled with saturated fats that can build up acid in the gums; all of the grease may stick on the teeth and gums in which the bacteria proliferates.

You may experience other kinds of symptoms of gum disease, including pain in the root of your mouth, dizziness, and pain in the roots of your teeth. These symptoms are serious enough to call your dentist for an orthodontist appointment, to have them examine what solution you need to take care of your teeth better before you start to lose any. Our best solution is to take care of our teeth by brushing, flossing, and eating the right foods that do not contain too much fat or sugar.
