Gingivitis – prevention, treatment
Gingivitis treatment. Gingivitis occurs in almost all adults, but the intensity is different. The most common cause of tooth loss is gingivitis. Also, gingivitis is a manifestation (including the first) of periodontal disease.
Gingivitis means inflammation of the gums. This inflammation of the gums translates through color change (from pink to red-blue), increased sensitivity and the bleeding that occurs during teeth wash.
Causes of gingivitis: dental plaque, tartar.
What can you do to relieve gingivitis?
- Wash and brush your gums at least 2 times a day for 3 minutes. Do it the right way.
- It is important to brush your gums edges because there is the most susceptible area to plaque. Use brushes that are bent at an angle of 45 degrees, so you can brush teeth and gum.
- Useful advice on toothbrushes: use 2 brushes. When you use one, let the other dry.
- Eat more foods rich in calcium: milk, green leafy vegetables. In addition to diet, make exercises and do not smoke. These measures lead to a strengthening of bones.
- Massage the gums to improve blood circulation. Do this massage using thumb and forefinger.
- Eat foods rich in vitamin C. This vitamin helps prevent bleeding. Eat fruits and vegetables or take vitamin C tablets (maximum 500 mg daily).
- Use with confidence antibacterial mouthwash.
- Adopt a lifestyle that will not bring too much stress, relax more.
- As I said above: alcohol and smoking. Quit smoking and avoid alcohol. These things will make good on all levels.
- The tongue should be cleaned of bacteria and toxins.
- Echinacea, chamomile are herbs with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action. Try them with confidence because they have visible effects in case of gingivitis.
- Gingivitis can be prevented if chewing carrots and celery.
