September is Gum Care Month: Protecting Your Oral Health at Seaham Smiles
At Seaham Smiles, your oral health is our priority, and this September, we’re excited to celebrate National Gum Care Month with you. Your gums play a crucial role in your overall dental well-being, and it’s essential to give them the attention they deserve.
September was designated as National Gum Care Month to raise awareness about the importance of gum health. It serves as a reminder that healthy gums are the foundation of a beautiful smile.
Gum Health Tips:
Different Aspects of Gum Disease: Gum disease, or periodontal disease, has two primary stages: gingivitis (mild) and periodontitis (advanced). Without proper care, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, causing severe damage to your gums and supporting structures.
Causes and Common Signs: Gum disease is mainly caused by plaque buildup on teeth. Symptoms include red, swollen gums, bleeding when brushing or flossing, bad breath, and gum recession.
Prevention is Key: Preventing gum disease starts with excellent oral hygiene habits, regular dental visits, and a healthy lifestyle. Early detection and treatment are crucial to halt its progression.
Gum Disease’s Impact on Health: Gum disease isn’t just about your mouth; it can affect your overall health. It has been linked to conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory issues. By maintaining healthy gums, you’re contributing to your overall well-being.
This National Gum Care Month, prioritise your oral health. Contact Seaham Smiles to schedule your appointment and ensure your gums stay strong and healthy. We offer direct access to our Hygienist’s meaning you don’t need to be an active patient with us to get your teeth cleaned. Let’s work together to achieve and maintain your beautiful smile.Back to Blog
