Periodonitis is a serious gum disease that, if left untreated, can not only lead to tooth loss, but also can cause bone loss in the jaw.
Signs of unhealthy gums:
puffy, red, bleeding gums
bad breath that does not go away
blood in your saliva when brushing your teeth
Blood on your pillow (very, very bad sign)
To keep your gums and teeth heathy:
Brush twice a day.
Each brushing should be at least 3 minutes long
Use a soft bristle tooth brush. (Medium or hard tooth brushes will cause you gum to receed and ar away your tooh at the gum line.)
If you can tolerate, spin brushes or battery-orperated or electric tooth brushes are the best to remove plaque most effectively.
Floss before brushing bed-time every night.
Mouthwashes are optional.
Get your dentist to examine your teeth and gums at least once a year.
Get a professional cleaning at least every 6-months
