2. Floss and interdental brushes are the best partner to toothbrushes and toothpastes to ensure better oral heath.
Toothbrushes cannot access the gaps and spaces in between teeth. This is primarily where the plaque is generally found. Flossing ensures that this plaque is removed from the gaps in the teeth and the gums. Interdental brushes also do the same.
There are plenty of studies that have claimed that good oral hygiene and gum health are linked with reduced risk of heart disease. This makes gum care even more important.
3. Use of fluoride containing mouthwash for maintaining fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
Mouthwash is a also a great tool to maintain oral health. A good fluoride mouthwash will help to clear our mouth of the debris. It will also aid in preventing plaque buildup and hence formation of tartar on the teeth. In addition to the removal of plaque it also kills the bacteria in the mouth which cause bad breath and hence the mouthwash also freshens our breath.
It is important to use a fluoride containing mouthwash since it will also provide additional protection throughout the day.

5. Healthy diet and lifestyle
It is very important to maintain healthy diet not just for bleeding gums but also to maintain overall health. A healthy diet will ensure that our mouth functions in perfect order. Sugar is one of the biggest causes for dental and health problems. Hence, avoiding added and excess sugar in foods keeps your mouth as well as over all body healthy. Other lifestyle related factors like smoking and alcohol consumption is also a cause for problems in our oral environment. Smokers generally are more prone to gum disease. This is because smoking causes a lack of oxygen in the bloodstream, so the infected gums don’t get the chance to heal.
It might be easy to overlook bleeding gums and think they is quite harmless. adds Dr Manan. However, the harsh reality is that if we ignore them then we could end up losing teeth. It could also lead to a number of other diseases and have a negative impact on our overall wellbeing. Healthy gums are needed to support healthy teeth. Please don’t ignore bleeding when brushing.
