Do you want top-notch gums? If so, our dentist, Dr. Grant R Young, is happy to give you the tips you need. You need to have strong and healthy gums to have a strong and healthy smile. Your gums are an essential part of your oral health. There are many things you can do to achieve the top-notch gums you need, and some of those things are:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Attending your dental checkups every six months, brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing your teeth once a day and rinsing your mouth with mouthwash daily can all help you have top-notch gums. This is because they clean the tissues and remove plaque, bacteria and other dangerous substances that irritate and damage the gums from the smile.

-Use easy-to-use flossing tools: Improper flossing can harm your gums more than you might realize, especially when you are rough with your floss or if you have to force the floss into place. So, it’s best to use flossing tools that are easy to use so you reduce your chances of damaging your gums when you floss.

-Brush properly: Whether you believe it or not, brushing too hard or with the wrong toothbrush can irritate and harm the gums. So, make sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush.
