You suddenly notice that you have an unpleasant smell from your mouth, the reception of your favorite food is accompanied by painful sensations, and during the brushing of teeth bleeding gums appeared. All this may be signs of a dental disease such as gingivitis.
What is gingivitis
Gingivitis (gum inflammation) due to the adverse effects of local and general factors, proceeds without violating the integrity of buccal attachment and changes in the general state of health.
Gingivitis is one of the most common dental diseases (seen in more than 80% of the adult population).
Why and how bleeding gums appears
Low-quality oral hygiene, abundant plaque plaque, tartar, irregular bite, lack of oral cavity sanitization, poor quality seals, mouth breathing, hormonal changes (pregnancy, adolescence) create a high risk of developing gum inflammation. There are symptoms such as redness, swelling due to edema, hypersensitivity, pain and sensation, and, as a result, her bleeding.
To prevent the development of gingivitis and reduce the risk of transition to more severe forms, first of all, careful hygienic care for the oral cavity:
- Regular teeth cleaning at least twice a day for three minutes;
- Use of rinses/dental elixirs;
- Regular (at least once a day) use of a dental floss (floss);
- Removal of plaque from the back of the language with the help of special devices (scrapers or brushes for cleaning the language).
Particular attention should be given to gingivitis with a competent choice of toothpaste, which must have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effect at the same time.
Antiseptic components (synthetic or vegetable), medicinal plant extracts, enzymes, mineral salts and its complexes must be non-irritating, hypoallergenic and maximal active. An example of such a paste can be considered R.O.C.S. Bionica, the modern formulation of which contains active fractions of plants at high concentrations that provide anti-inflammatory, anti-edema and anesthetic effects.
In order to prevent the development of gingivitis, it is necessary to pay attention to the diet:
- Use hard food products that require active chewing, as it improves the self-cleaning of the oral cavity, stimulates the production of saliva and improves blood supply to the gums;
- To minimize the use of foods containing carbohydrates (confectionery and flour products), as they contribute to the active reproduction of pathogenic bacteria, being a nutrient for them.
