All About Gums
Healthy gums are the foundation of good dental health. Here are some signs that your gums are in good shape.
Gums form a tight seal around your teeth, which limits the places where plaque can grow.
Healthy gums are a light or coral shade of pink, although they may contain other pigments depending on your ethnic origin.
If your gums start to appear red or swollen, bleed when you brush or floss, or are beginning to recede, it can be a sign of gum disease.
Brushing removes plaque along the gum line which can cause gingivitis, an early and reversible form of gum disease.
If gingivitis is left untreated, it can weaken the seal between the gums and teeth allowing small spaces or ‘pockets’ to develop.
