Gums are certainly not the first things that you think about when considering dentistry, yet healthy gums are needed for a healthy smile! Healthy gums need to be maintained to keep your teeth well positioned and stable. Gum disease can begin with no apparent reason and can remain unnoticed for a considerable amount of time. Occasional bleeding and soreness can lead to the gums receding and teeth becoming unstable. This problem is treatable and can be prevented by taking good care of your gums and regular visits to your dentist.
It's important to continue your dental hygiene appointments whilst undergoing orthodontic treatment. Please call All Orthodontics today to learn more about how you can care for your teeth and gums.
