The summer months can throw you off of your usual routine. Here are things you can do to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you can make time to see your dentist and avoid getting carried away with unhealthy foods, you stand a far better chance of maintaining good dental health throughout the year.
Gingivitis is the early stages of periodontal disease. If you have gingivitis, you may not experience any pain but there are other symptoms you might notice. Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth, slightly puffy gums, and bad breath can all be signs that you have gingivitis. Often, brushing and flossing coupled with regular dental visits are enough to stave off gingivitis.
