If you have questions about gum tissues, then our periodontist, Dr. Daniela Zambon, would like to help you find the answers. The more you know about your gums, the better chance you have of properly cleaning and caring for them regularly. So, to help you find the answers you need, she would like to share the answers to the following commonly asked questions:
Question No. 1: Why are gum tissues important?
Answer: Your gums protect your tooth roots and underlying bone and support the smile. Without them, you could suffer loose and lost teeth and even a broken, damaged and collapsed underlying jawbone.
Question No. 2: How should I care for my gum tissues?
Answer: You should clean them regularly by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day and attending your dental cleaning appointments every six months. These things remove the substances that threaten and harm your gums regularly. You should also avoid brushing and flossing too vigorously. Being rough while cleaning your smile can irritate and harm the gums.
Question No. 3: What issues should I avoid to keep my gums in tip-top shape?
Answer: The No. 1 issue to avoid is gum disease. This disease is very dangerous for the smile. It can affect the gums, teeth, underlying bone and even the entire health if you let it. It’s best to prevent it by doing the things mentioned in the answer for question No. 2.
