Gum Disease Can Be a Serious Problem

When someone has gingivitis, the gums become red, swollen, and can bleed easily. Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease that can usually be reversed with daily brushing and flossing, and regular cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist.

Gingivitis (gum inflammation) usually precedes periodontitis (gum disease). However, it is important to know that not all gingivitis progresses to periodontitis. In the early stage of gingivitis, bacteria in plaque build up, causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed during tooth brushing.

Today people are more concerned about their oral hygiene, but do they actually use the right products? For some, flossing is pretty hard and impossible to do, and others just cannot get rid of unesthetic coffee and wine stains. The market offers so many products, but do you really know what goes inside your oral cavity?

Health experts have reported various cases of patients who have experienced a severe toothache, gum irritation, brittle or translucent teeth, triggered by a teeth whitener.

You have so many reasons to dump all those chemical-laden products and go all-natural. Make your own toothpaste using natural ingredients. You will get a natural teeth whitener and healing remedy at the same time. You can say goodbye to reverse gum disease for good.
