Sometimes when brushing your teeth starts light bleeding. Often we do not pay attention to it, but the bleeding is a sign of gingivitis, which cannot be ignored. Inflammation of the gums is one of the main causes of tooth loss in adults, so treatment and prevention is very important.

The cause of gingivitis is plaque.  It contains bacteria that produce toxins. Toxins irritate the gum and start destroying the tissues. If the time does not remove the plaque, the bacteria will begin to destroy not only the gum, but also the bone supporting the teeth, and the plaque will eventually become a tartar. Progressing inflammation of the gums can lead to the retreat of the gums from the teeth, the formation of pus and even to the loss of teeth.

Depending on the severity of the gum disease is divided into gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums moderate, it affects the gums and surrounding teeth. When periodontitis damaged tooth tissue and bone. Signs of inflammation of the gums  - redness, bleeding, swelling of the gums. If the gum disease progresses, bad breath appears, teeth may seem longer (as a result of the gums receding from the teeth), the bite changes, and in particularly neglected cases, the teeth begin to stagger and fall out.

At the first signs of gingivitis you need to see your dentist.  He will conduct a complete examination, which can include even X-rays, clean teeth from plaque and tartar, and then prescribe treatment. If you have gingivitis, treatment will not be difficult, and with periodontitis, you may need a deep cleansing of the roots and canals, sometimes even a surgical intervention.

Treatment and prevention of gingivitis not boil down to some quite simple recommendations.

In the first place you should thoroughly brush your teeth at least two times a day for 3-5 minutes.  From the inflammation of the gums help toothpastes containing fluoride. If you have already started bleeding - do not rely on pasta, the manufacturer of which promises to save you from all problems with teeth in one fell swoop, it is better to bathe in the pharmacy a special paste for the treatment of inflammation of the gums.

When brushing your teeth, you should hold the brush at an angle of 45 ° to your teeth. so you will clean both the gums and teeth. It is best to brush your teeth with rotational movements. Well, if you have two toothbrushes, then they can be alternated: one you brush your teeth, the second at this time dries up and is ventilated. To combat plaque, the electric brush fits better than the conventional brush. In between brushing your teeth during the day, use dental floss.

The bones that make up the teeth, you need to strengthen to prevent their destruction. To strengthen bone tissue, the body needs calcium.  Of food, calcium is found in dairy products, almonds, sesame seeds, seeds, vegetables with green leaves. Calcium is poorly absorbed in the body without vitamin D3. Therefore, the dentist can prescribe complex preparations containing calcium and vitamin D3. Vitamin C will help with bleeding in the gums, but note that it removes the symptom, but does not eliminate the cause.

For the prevention and treatment of inflammation of the gums, it is advised to clean the tongue  - on it, too, accumulate bacteria. To strengthen the gums and improve their blood supply, you can massage them a little, between the forefinger and thumb. It is better not to spend all these manipulations every day, but alternate: one day to massage the gums, the other - to clean the tongue.

To fight bacteria can use hydrogen peroxide or chlorhexidine to rinse the mouth. 3% peroxide solution is mixed with warm boiled water in a 1: 1 ratio, and one teaspoon of chlorhexidine is enough for a glass of water. You can use an aqueous solution of baking soda - apply it on the gums with your finger, and then brush your teeth. In particularly severe cases, inflammation of the gums dentist can prescribe antibiotics for you.

For the prevention and treatment of gum disease every day should eat vegetables and fruits – carrots, apples.  Hard fibers of plant foods help to clean and stimulate your teeth and gums.

A healthy lifestyle is very important to prevent gum inflammation.  The fact is that alcohol and nicotine remove from the body the vitamins and minerals necessary for it. And stress and nervous tension weaken the body, and it no longer effectively fights bacteria and infection.

Do not miss any preventive dental check-UPS. because the disease is easier to prevent than to treat later, and if your gums are still inflamed - the doctor will notice this at an early stage and prescribe treatment. Inflammation of the gums can not be neglected, because it is dangerous not only for your teeth. If the bacteria produced by gum disease get into the blood, then there may be heart problems.

Treatment and prevention of gum disease is very important for your health. If you follow our simple guidelines and visit the dentist regularly, then your smile will always be dazzling.

Inflammation of the gums just does not happen. If it appears, it means you have to go to the doctor, at least for a consultation. This can not be run. I'm unfortunately very familiar with this problem. I not only cleanse pastes and rinse with folk remedies, but I also smear Holisal, a dental gel from inflammations. It's good for me.

In general, it is better not to tighten with gingivitis, if it is, then the opalaskivatel and toothpastes will not help, we must go to the dentist.

Please tell me if no bleeding but there is inflammation and pain when eating and cleaning teeth what is it? clean your teeth 2 times a day, okay. Such inflammation I have seen almost every month then they themselves are. What is it?

it is possible that a weak gum, the slightest damage can lead to this. or if in a draft can blow, then there are inflammations, here I have, if it blows, then on the side with which the barrel, then the gum inflames. I use parodontocid, at first there was a solution, my mouth rinsed, then I bought the paste, I cleaned it neatly, so as not to damage the gums strongly and the result is like. Try it.

yes, still happens, swollen gums, when you experience what stress (personally I have), for some reason begin to bleed. with what it is connected, it is not clear. and parodontocid helps really, for a couple of days the condition of the gums normalizes.
