How to care for healthy gums;Gum disease is the main cause of bad brushing habits, fatigue and stress



 In our body, the mouth region is a very important organ that is directly related to life, such as eating, drinking, and breathing. In order to maintain basic health, a proper supply of nutrients is essential first of all, and food intake to supply nutrients must be supported by strong teeth and healthy gums. In this regard, as the importance of gum health, a base for strong teeth, has become more important, even gum-specialized dentists have recently emerged.



  To maintain a healthy gums, one should take good care of one's mouth. No matter how meticulously you brush your teeth, the food scraps stuck between your teeth or plaque are not completely removed. This can cause inflammation or damage to the gums, so you must use dental floss or an interdental toothbrush to take care of them carefully after eating. If it is difficult to use dental floss or toothbrush every time, simply rinse it with gargle products or just rinse it with bottled water will help gum health.

  Bad brushing habits are the main culprit of gum damage. You can keep your gums healthy with the right brushing habits. It is appropriate to brush your teeth within three minutes because brushing your teeth for too long can cause wear and damage to your gums. It is also recommended that toothbrushes be replaced once a month because long-term use of toothbrushes prevents toothbrushes from getting rid of dental floss and may cause bacterial growth.

 Like other diseases, gum disease is prone to development when stress and fatigue accumulate. Sufficient rest and sleep are also essential for gum health, as hormone imbalance caused by lower immunity and lack of sleep causes gum inflammation. In addition, eating healthy gum foods helps maintain gum health.

  A representative food group that is good for gum health is fruits and vegetables that contain a lot of vitamin C. Kiwi, which has high vitamin C content among fruits, promotes collagen synthesis, the main ingredient of gum tissue, which helps regenerate gum tissue and is effective in preventing inflammation. Among vegetables, celery has a lot of fiber, which helps remove plaque and strengthen teeth.

 A rich ingredient in the cornstalk called beta cytosterol prevents the denture sac, which sits between the teeth and gums, from being cut. Some gum disease drugs include beta cytosterol. Therefore, it is helpful to prevent gum disease if you drink sweetened cornstalk water as tea or gargle.

  Cheese, a dairy product, is rich in calcium and phosphorus, which protects the surface of teeth and inhibits acidification in the mouth, which is effective in preventing cavities. The polyphenol component of green tea inhibits plaque and bacterial production in the mouth. In addition, the chitekin rich in green tea helps prevent periodontal disease, so one to two cups a day helps maintain gum health.

  In the case of gums, aging progresses faster than other body organs. If oral hygiene is not thoroughly performed, functions will decrease rapidly and periodontal diseases will occur. The most important key to healthy gum care is to maintain healthy dental conditions and to maintain regular dental checkups.
