Many people are accustomed to taking care of the external beauty of their teeth, but forget to pay due attention to the gums. However, according to statistics, it is the weak and diseased soft tissues of the oral cavity that provoke tooth loss in half of the cases. All gum diseases that can occur in children and adults are divided into 3 main groups:

  1. Gingivitis is a localized inflammation of the mucous membrane next to a specific tooth. In this case, the tissues of the latter are not affected and it is relatively easy to cope with the pathological process.
  2. Periodontitis is a gradual 'flaking' from the gum tooth to form a pocket. It accumulates food residues that are difficult to remove on your own. Against this background, the gums begin to bleed, swell, and pain appears during chewing. Also, teeth gradually loosen, shift, fall out.
  3. Periodontal disease is a violation of the supply of blood to tissues. Against this background, gum dystrophy occurs, the tooth necks are exposed, the gaps between them increase. The position of the gums relative to each other changes. At the same time, they are imperceptibly destroyed without hyperemia, swelling or bleeding.

Gum disease often occurs with improper oral care. This includes irregular and poor cleaning of the teeth, as well as the use of products that do not provide the necessary protection for the mucous membrane. Dental gels, rinses and balms can significantly improve gum health. In this roundup, we'll take a look at the best ones.
