Best Toothpaste for Gum Disease

photo for best toothpaste for gum disease for evolve toothbrush, best for gingivitisIf you’re wondering what’s the best toothpaste for gum disease, you might want to think differently, and consider the key determinants that together defeat gum disease.

Gum disease, or periodontal disease begins when your gums get inflamed due to bacteria seeping into your dental plaque. Plaque is the soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth from the food and drink you eat. The millions of bacteria in plaque triggers disease in the gums.

In the early stages, known as gingivitis, your gums might be inflamed, or bleed.  Your breath may be bad, and you might have a persistent bad taste in your mouth.   These symptoms are a byproduct of your oral care neglect;  you may not be brushing your teeth regularly, or you’re using the wrong kind of toothbrush, or your brushing technique is too harsh on your delicate gums.  (You will notice we haven’t mentioned the best toothpaste; for gum disease, it’s not a major issue.)  More importantly, you might not floss, which is vital for getting to the gunk between your teeth and gums.  Your floss might be too thick or your technique too aggressive, causing the bleeding.

So when it comes to the best toothpaste for gum disease, the answer is the one you will use.  The one you will use twice a day that makes your mouth feel fresh and clean.  It can contain flouride, or be a ‘natural’ paste.  It might contain baking soda, or coconut oil.  What matters more is the technique you use while the toothpaste is on the soft-bristle toothbrush in your mouth.  Be sure it is massaging your gums; and be certain to really clean the plaque off your teeth.   And brush for a good two minutes; most people brush for less than 30 seconds.

Understanding the bigger picture of your oral health and committing to a consistent regimen of care will guide you to the best toothpaste for gum disease and the most effective use of that toothpaste on the brush that you use every day.
