Gamot sa Namamagang Gums: What's the Best Form of Treatment?

    Gamot sa Namamagang Gums: What's the Best Form of Treatment?

    A lot of people suffer from swollen gums, usually caused by gingivitis. While gingivitis can usually be prevented with the right dental care, it still helps to use the right gamot sa namamagang gums to make healing faster.

    Read on to find out which forms of treatment are best, and how you can best deal with namamagang gums.

    Gingivitis and Bleeding Gums: What’s the Difference?

    Which is the Best Gamot sa Namamagang Gums?

    There are a lot of different and effective gamot sa namamagang gums. However, your main goal should be to not just treat the swelling, but tackle it at the root of the problem, which is usually gingivitis.

    Here are some things that you can do about it:

    Flossing and brushing regularly

    First off, flossing and brushing regularly is the best gamot sa namamagang gums. Flossing and brushing help keep your teeth clean and free from bacteria that can get inside your gums and lead to gingivitis and swollen gums.

    As much as possible try to brush and floss after every meal to help remove any lingering food particles. Make sure to brush all sides of your tooth, the front, back, sides, and don’t forget to brush your molars as well.

    It’s also important to floss since dental floss gets into all the places that a regular brush can’t reach. This helps ensure that all surfaces of your teeth are clean and free from bacteria.

    Take note that when you’re flossing, avoid running the floss down to your gums. The floss should only clean the sides of your teeth; rubbing the floss on your gums can damage them and make things worse if you have swollen gums.

    Use a soft toothbrush

    The type of brush you use is just as important as how often you brush your teeth. In fact, using a softer toothbrush can be an effective gamot sa namamagang gums.

    If you suffer from swollen gums, then using a toothbrush with stiff bristles is a bad idea. This is because the stiffer bristles can damage your gums, and potentially make things worse. Using a stiff toothbrush can also cause swollen gums in people who don’t have it in the first place. It’s also important to not brush your teeth too hard, and let the brush and the toothpaste do most of the work.

    Increase your vitamin intake

    Vitamin C is important in keeping your gums healthy, so make sure to have enough vitamin C daily. It is one of the best gamot sa namamagang gums that you can have.

    You can get enough vitamin C by eating fresh fruits, particularly citrus fruits, as well as drinking fresh fruit juice.

    If it’s hard to get fresh fruit where you are, you can also opt for vitamin C supplements instead. These are very convenient and have more than enough of your daily requirement for vitamin C.

    Quit smoking

    Smoking is one of the ways that people develop gum disease. When you smoke, your body’s immune system is weakened, so it is harder for it to fight off infections, especially in your mouth.

    In addition, cigarette smoke affects the healthy function of the cells in your gums. This means that not only are your gums more prone to infection because of smoking, their ability to heal and function normally is also affected.

    It’s also not uncommon for long-term smokers to have their teeth fall out because of serious infections. So if you are a smoker, one of the best gamot sa namamagang gums is to quit smoking as soon as possible.

    How Often Should You Go to the Dentist for a Cleaning?

    Go to the dentist

    Lastly, the most effective gamot sa namamagang gums is to go to the dentist. Your dentist can help treat any gum or dental problems you might have, and they can also give you advice on how to better care for your teeth. It is best to have regular oral cleaning by a dental professional every 6 months.

    If you’re having serious trouble with your gums, don’t try and remedy it at home. It would be best to visit your dentist and get help.
