The best way to ensure you have the healthiest smile possible is to practice a healthy oral routine that includes brushing your teeth (twice daily if possible), flossing, rinsing, cleaning your tongue and visiting your Aylmer dentist at least once annually. When it comes to promoting healthier gums making sure they get cleaned thoroughly during your brushing and flossing is imperative.
Another interesting way to make your gums healthier is to use the power of pomegranates. “If you are prone to gum disease or gingivitis, massage the affected area with dry pomegranate peel powder before brushing your teeth. Let it remain for 10 – 15 minutes before rinsing it with water. Do this frequently to prevent inflamed or bleeding gums.”
The healthier you keep your gums, the stronger your teeth and overall mouth will be. Visit your Aylmer dentist for regular checkups, cleanings and to get tips on other ways to improve your oral hygiene.
