Gums are important to a person’s overall health

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

There are many important aspects to a person’s health. Diet and exercise are key, but so too is good oral health. Having a healthy mouth can positively affect a person’s entire body. Critically important to a clean mouth are healthy gums. Keeping gums clean and healthy can prevent immediate problems such as gingivitis or gum disease, but it can also stop more serious problems from developing such as blood infections. Infected gums have been known to cause a number of health issues in people, including problems with the throat, esophagus and even the heart. While people typically do not pay much attention to their gums, the reality is that it is very important to keep them in good working order.

The Smiles On Seven Dental Centre in Markham, Ontario understands the role that gums play in people’s overall health. The staff on hand have the experience and tools needed to keep gums in excellent shape, ensuring that they contribute to people’s overall well-being – both physically and mentally. Whether cleaning gums themselves or instructing patients on how they can care for their gums at home, the dentists and dental hygienists at Smiles On Seven ensure that their patients have clean and healthy mouths. The dental centre even uses tiny cameras inside the mouths of patients to thoroughly examine them and get a good look at everything that is going on with the teeth, gums, tongue and throat. This enables the team at Smiles On Seven to provide their patients with the best care possible.

Everybody should be concerned about their gums and keeping them healthy and clean. Good oral health is even more important as people age.
