Get your teeth cleaning done. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease which can soon move to the next stage called periodontitis. Periodontitis causes tooth loss and can affect overall health. Thus, if you have bleeding gums, its wise to visit your dentist.
How to prevent gum disease?
Brush your teeth after every meal at least twice each day with a homemade probiotic toothpaste or a baking soda toothpaste or gum rub.
As a matter of fact, floss between teeth at least once each day to remove food particles which cause tooth decay.
Use a dental pick to get trapped food particles and bacteria out from between your teeth.
Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush and change every 2-3 months.
Rinse your mouth with an antibacterial alcohol-free mouthwash, to clear off any bacteria which remain after brushing.
Stick to a well-balanced diet which has plenty of fruits and green vegetables rich in Vitamin C, A, and E, to strengthen the immune system.
Eating crunchy vegetables and fruits like cucumber, carrots, and apple stimulates the secretion of saliva which clears bacteria and protects teeth.
