Gum Self-Check

1

BLEEDING

 

If you notice any blood, especially while brushing your teeth, eating crispy food or using a toothpick, your gums need help.

SWELLING

 

 

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.

COLOUR

 

Naturally pink gums are a sign of good health.
If you notice any redness (or a blueish hue),
gum disease may be setting in.
