If you notice any blood, especially while brushing your teeth, eating crispy food or using a toothpick, your gums need help.
Take a closer look at the triangular gum sections between your teeth. Healthy gums are firm and clearly defined. If your gums look swollen or rounded, they aren't as healthy as they should be. Disclaimer: Creative visualization only.
Naturally pink gums are a sign of good health.
If you notice any redness (or a blueish hue),
gum disease may be setting in.
