How to Treat Gum Disease

Most of us think all you do is grab any old toothbrush, put a dab of toothpaste on it and brush away (usually in a hurry and without paying attention).  We don’t recognize that we should be using a soft bristle toothbrush, brushing massage-like with ease and care on our teeth and gums, and that we should do this twice a day.  If you want to know how to treat gum disease, activating this method is a good place to start.

Next, we need to floss our teeth twice a day, gently.  We should be kinder to our gums, which are made up of delicate tissue.  Flossing too forcefully inflames the gums and makes them red and swollen, which can affect the integrity of our teeth, and indeed our whole mouth.

Rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash and twice/yearly visits to your dentist are the final pieces in answering the question of how to treat gum disease.  By actively looking after your mouth on a daily basis, you can kill gingivitis before it gets any worse.  This will ensure you don’t develop periodontitis, severe gum disease where bacteria affects your whole mouth and deteriorates your gums and teeth.   Nip it in the bud with EVOLVE!
