Swollen Gums Causes

photo for swollen gums causes for evolve toothbrush, best for swollen gumsThere is no doubt about it. Swollen gums causes distress when you discover them, and if left untreated, can worsen into serious gum disease. Red, puffy gums are just one symptom of gingivitis, a minor form of gum disease that you can reverse by paying attention to your oral health and hygiene.  The key to the cure is see your dentist right away, so you can identify what might be causing the problem.

So what are some of the chief swollen gums causes

* Not brushing your teeth twice a day.  It's vital to brush with a soft bristled toothbrush  -  like the EVOLVE Toothbrush – in order to clean your mouth and rid it of food particles, bacteria, and other unpleasant things that lurk there.  And brush gently; your teeth and gums like soft massages, not harsh up-and-down movements.

* Not flossing every day. It doesn't take more than a few minutes, but careful flossing – not too aggressively - may be the most vital thing you do to prevent swollen gum causes.

* Not rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash.  Swishing daily kills bacteria that causes swollen gums.

* Smoking.  Yes; another reason to kick the bad habit.  Your gums hate cigarettes.

* Not eating a reasonable, balanced diet.   If you eat poorly and your diet is out of whack, you will have stomach issues, acid reflux problems, all of which affect your teeth and gums.  Healthy protein, plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and good fats naturally include plenty of vitamin C and calcium, minimizing problems in your mouth.

* Not drinking plenty of water. Drinking water, especially after eating, helps to wash your food off your teeth and reduce the bacteria that form gum-damaging plaque.

* Not relaxing!  If you are constantly stressed, you raise the the stress hormone cortisol in your body to dangerous levels, which increases the likelihood of inflammation in your body, including your gums.
