Puffy Gums

photo for puffy gums for evolve toothbrush, best for puffy gumsDid you know that a recent national survey revealed that over a quarter of adults in the USA admit they lie to their dentist about how often they floss their teeth?

Not only that; more than one-third of all Americans would rather do anything – including washing dirty dishes, waiting in traffic, doing their taxes or cleaning their toilets – than floss their teeth!

It seems crazy, considering that flossing takes several minutes a day, and along with brushing your teeth is the best way to prevent gum disease, which manifests itself with puffy gums, bleeding while you brush, bad breath, a bad taste in your mouth, and potentially a whole host of other problems for your precious oral health.


The truth is, when you fail to brush and floss daily, gum disease, known more officially as periodontal disease creates dangerous inflammation in your mouth.  The bacteria that congregates in plaque – the stuff that gathers on your teeth from your food and drink – leads to puffy gums, irritation, pain, potentially receding gums and  possible tooth loss.  Advanced gum disease is no joke, and has been linked to a host of chronic illnesses including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer.

Yes, even though millions of people look in the mirror one morning and wonder why their teeth are bleeding, their puffy gums are red and swollen, gum disease is not taken seriously, and is not considered an urgent epidemic.  Perhaps it should be.

So don’t be in the dark about gum disease!  Brush and floss every day, carefully.  Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash, too. And see your dentist twice a year.
