Swollen Gums Around Tooth

photo for swollen gums around tooth for evolve toothbrush, best for swollen gumsIf you are worried because you noticed swollen gums around tooth lurking in your mouth, you are not alone.  Over three-quarters of American adults over age 35 have some form of gum disease, and most of the time it can be cured with proper attention to your oral health. In fact, the odds are that those red, puffy and swollen gums around tooth is an early symptom of gingivitis, which is the least severe form of gum disease.

The reality is, if you don't practice regular dental hygiene, bacteria in your mouth form into plaque on your teeth.  This causes inflammation in your gums, which results in swollen gums around tooth and your gums begin to bleed.

Most people with gingivitis do not experience serious pain from the inflammation, particularly if it's caught early.  Happily, at this stage you can reverse the gum disease by instituting a regular, consistent program of oral care. This includes brushing and flossing twice a day, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and visiting your dentist.

But just doing all of that is not enough; it's how you do it that matters, too.  You need to use a soft bristle toothbrush so as not to damage your sensitive gums.  You should brush in a circular motion, rather than as a brisk, up-and-down routine exercise.

Interestingly, hormones play a role in gum health, and might be a cause of swollen gums around tooth in your mouth.   For example, the excess hormones during puberty can heighten blood flow to the gums, making them red, puffy and sensitive. During menstruation, female gums can bleed before a period's onset.  During pregnancy, gingivitis can rear its ugly head in the first few months and continue through the eighth month. Birth control products, too, can exacerbate gum problems.
