Gum care tips
- Keep your teeth clean.
There is nothing better than brushing our teeth to keep them clean. Maintain good oral hygiene: brush your teeth three times a day, once after each meal. Mouthwash is also very useful for keeping our teeth clean. Find out more here.
- Limit the consumption of certain foods and products.
Reduce consumption of foods and products that stain our teeth, snuff, tea, cola, wine, coffee, etc. Ideally, after every one of these products, we brush our teeth or wipe away our mouth and mouthwash.
How to Remove Stains From Teeth?
- Infusion of roots: For external use, the roots of plants like Marshmallow, Liquorice, Alfalfa, or prepared horseradish infusion and swish applied twice a day
- Sage: teeth whitening naturally. A good tip is to rub the teeth with fresh sage leaves.
- Hydrogen Peroxide: To whiten teeth, occasionally rub with cotton wool soaked in oxygenated water for sanitary use
- Strawberries and apples: eating strawberries, apples, or chewing salvia leaves provides many vitamins, helps cleanse the entire body, and will whiten teeth gradually.
If your teeth have become crooked or discoloured, some cosmetic solutions can help you regain your smile in no time.
Veneers are a strong and durable solution to discoloured or crooked teeth. They are coverings, often made from porcelain, placed on the tooth’s surface to improve the look and feel of the teeth. Read more about dental veneers here.
Veneers do not necessarily ‘solve’ the stains but rather cover them up and prevent further staining.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is imperative to healthy teeth and gums.
How to care your gums
One of the problems that can affect our health more often is gingivitis or inflammation of the gums. This periodontal disease also includes a significant infection that can destroy the tissues supporting the teeth.
The leading cause of gingivitis is plaque left too long on and between teeth. This plaque causes tooth decay to begin, and if not removed in time, it degenerates into tartar that is placed at the base of the tooth. Both the plaque and tartar contain bacteria that cause infections. More.
