Healthy gums are the foundation of good oral health. However, they often receive less attention than teeth, despite playing a crucial role in maintaining optimal oral condition. At Global Dent Dental Clinic, with our locations in Villeray, Ste-Julie, and Hochelaga, we are committed to helping you maintain both your teeth and gums in perfect condition. In this complete guide, we will provide all the necessary information to keep your gums healthy and prevent common problems such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Understanding the Importance of Healthy Gums

Gums are the soft tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth. They are composed of thick and dense mucosa, forming a protective barrier around each tooth. The health of your gums is essential because:

  • Prevent diseases: Healthy gums protect your teeth from periodontal diseases, which can lead to tooth loss.

  • Maintain dental structure: Gums help keep your teeth in place.

  • Affect overall health: There is a connection between gum diseases and health problems such as heart disease and diabetes.

Signs of Healthy and Unhealthy Gums To keep your gums in good condition, it is important to identify the signs of healthy versus unhealthy gums.

  • Healthy Gums:

  • Color: Pale pink.

  • Texture: Firm and stippled like the skin of an orange.

  • Non-bleeding gums: Do not bleed easily when brushing or flossing.

  • No inflammation: Not swollen or sensitive.

  • Unhealthy Gums:

  • Color: Deep red or purple.

  • Texture: Loose and smooth.

  • Bleeding gums: Bleed easily during brushing or flossing.

  • Inflammation: Swelling and sensitivity.

Keeping your gums healthy is essential for your oral and overall health. Through good oral hygiene, a balanced diet, the avoidance of harmful habits, and regular visits to the dentist, you can ensure that your gums remain in good condition. At Global Dent Dental Clinic, we are here to support you every step of the way with our locations in Villeray, Ste-Julie, and Hochelaga.
