How can you improve your gums?
To improve gums, regular oral and gum care is essential.
Brushing your teeth every day and using floss and mouthwash to clean between your teeth helps to remove food particles, keep the periodontium healthy and fight discolouration. To do this, you should use fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles. You should also pay attention to the correct brushing technique. Brushing and flossing remove plaque and bacteria that build up on the tooth, in the spaces between the teeth and at the gumline. Cleaning can help reduce tooth decay and gum problems such as gingivitis.
Eating a healthy diet
A balanced diet helps to reduce inflamed gums.
Consumption of sugary foods and drinks should be reduced as they damage tooth enamel, increasing the risk of gum problems. A healthy oral flora and mucosa also help to reduce the risk of gingivitis. For this, a balanced diet with enough vitamins and minerals is important and you should make sure you drink enough fluids.
Important vitamins and nutrients for good dental health include:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin K
- B vitamins
- Omega-3 fatty acids

Regular Oral health checkups at the ALPINE WHITE Studio
To help you prevent any form of gum disease in its early stage, come to our ALPINE WHITE Studio for regular Oral Health Checkups.
We also recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned by a dental hygienist for example. This removes stubborn plaque and bacteria and keeps your gums healthy. However, if it is already inflamed, dental hygiene can heal it. Early treatment of signs of gum disease is important to avoid visits to the dentist's office, serious complications and health problems.
You can also take care of your gums with our Whitening Toothpaste Sensitive Relief.
