GINGIVITIS TREATMENT

Step1: Have your teeth professionally cleaned. 

Step 2: Ask your dentist or hygienist if you’re brushing and flossing properly

We learn these skills at a very early age, and a little refresher course can make a huge difference.

Brushing: Be sure to hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums, and brush using short circular strokes. It’s important not to use too much pressure, so try holding your brush like a pen between your thumb and forefinger. Don’t forget to brush the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of each tooth.

Flossing: Using about 18 inches of floss, wind most of it around the middle finger of one hand, and wind a small piece around the middle finger of the other hand. Unwind fresh floss as you move from tooth to tooth. Slide the floss all the way up and down between each tooth, and curve it into a C-shape at the gum line so it slides between the teeth and gums. If you’re still experiencing gingivitis symptoms, you should make an appointment to visit your dentist and hygienist.

Step 3: Use a medium or soft toothbrush and a toothpaste for sensitive gums (from the pharmacy).

Step 4: Use interdental brushes .

Step 5: Use an Antibacterial Mouthwash. Mouthwash can get to plaque bacteria that’s hiding in those hard-to-reach places.

Step6: Visit your Dentist for check ups once in a while.
