Keep healthy gums

 

Healthy Gums

Healthy gums give a foundation for a healthy mouth. Bacteria in dental plaque and tartar can cause gingivitis and gum disease, so keeping the build-up of plaque and tartar under control is the most important factor in keeping your gums healthy. This is achieved by visiting your dental hygienist regularly, and practising excellent oral hygiene at home.
