Best Ways to Prevent Gum Inflammation

Gum Inflammation

Gum inflammation (also known as gingivitis) is an oral condition that can turn into gum disease if it’s not treated in its early stages. The best approach to prevent gum-related conditions is to target their most common causes. 

Key takeaways:

  • Keep a strict oral hygiene routine to prevent plaque build-up, which is one of the main causes of gum inflammation. It only takes a few hours for plaque to start building up, so brush your teeth and floss daily.
  • Pregnant women seem to be more likely to develop gum inflammation due to hormonal changes. If you’re pregnant, make regular appointments with your dentist to ensure everything is in order.
  • Quit smoking and make sure you keep under control conditions like diabetes, which often lead to gingivitis.

You should also visit the dentist regularly to get detailed check-ups.
