Welcome to Healthy Gum Tips!
This site is designed to give you useful tips and hints on how to keep your teeth and gums healthy and how to maintain a healthy smile. Please remember that every patient has different needs and therefore should visit a dentist and hygienist regularly to find out the status of their level of oral hygiene or how they can improve it.
Why is oral hygiene important?
A smile is the shortest distance between two people. To make sure that your smile reflects the best about you is to practice good oral hygiene.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums not only enable you to look and feel good, they make it possible to eat and speak properly. Good oral health is important to your overall well being.
Daily preventive care, including proper brushing, flossing or use of id brushes, will help stop problems before they develop and is much less painful, expensive, and worrisome than treating conditions that have been allowed to progress.
