28 October 2014, Dabur Dental Team

When the dentist advices you to brush daily with India’s best toothpaste - Dabur Meswak - Herbal Toothpaste, it is in your best interest. Daily brushing and flossing can prevent plaque build-up and save the person from losing a tooth or many teeth. It can also help you from falling prey to periodontal disease, better known as gum disease. In this disease, an inflammation of the gums can progress to affect the bone that surrounds and supports your teeth. If you are suffering from gum disease, you may experience red, swollen, tender and bleeding gums. There can be a formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums and you may also experience loose teeth, abnormal bite and receding gums. There can also be a persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth. Besides poor oral hygiene, even plaque, hormonal changes, some medications, certain treatments, genetic factors, illnesses and addictions which cause gum diseases.

There are three stages of gum disease:

The earliest stage of this dental problems is called Gingivitis. During this stage, there is an inflammation of the gums caused by plaque build-up at the gum-line. This happens due to lack of daily or regular brushing and flossing, which results in producing toxins that can irritate the gum tissue. Bleeding can also be a symptom during this stage. At this early stage in gum disease, damage can be improved, since the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth in place are not yet affected.

This is the 2nd stage of gum disease . At this stage, the supporting bone and fibres that hold your teeth in place are irreversibly damaged. Your gums may begin to form a pocket below the gum line, which traps food and plaque. Proper dental treatment and improved home care can usually help prevent further damage.

This is the third and final stage of gum disease. During this stage, the fibres and bone supporting your teeth are destroyed, which can cause your teeth to shift or loosen. This can affect your bite and, if aggressive treatment can't save them, teeth may need to be removed.

You can avoid this dental problem by:
  • Eating the right things to ensure proper nutrition for your jawbone and teeth
  • Avoiding bad habits such as smoking cigarettes and other forms of tobacco
  • Scheduling regular check-ups with the dentist
  • Opting for professional teeth cleaning every once in a while
  • Maintaining a regulated brushing-flossing schedule
Maintain proper oral hygiene and choose the right toothpaste to keep all dental problems away & ensure proper dental care.
