One of the most dangerous things that your mouth can suffer from is gum disease and if you don’t get in quick to tackle it, it can bring on tooth loss and heart disease. You have to look out for the early warning signs and the most obvious one is bleeding gums and if you find blood on your toothbrush after brushing, you need to act fast. It could simply be a case of an over abrasive brush, but in any case, seek solace and advice from someone who knows and if you live in Surbiton, then get in touch with an expert outfit called Clifton Dental; they are based in Bristol but serve the town and they can help you through this potential minefield. Things will have to change with the way you do your oral hygiene from brush to mouthwash and up the times you use them; rinse with salt water, get in some herbal remedies and incorporate them into your programme, as they can help soothe any burning inflammation in the gums, especially if you massage the gum tissue with certain herbal products. Look at what you eat as well as a good diet helps to improve your immune system and keep saliva levels up in the mouth. Finally if you smoke and drink, this will not help with any recovery, so try to cut these out.
