IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHY GUMS

WHY WE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF OUR GUMS?

 

Oral health is one of the human body’s physical crossroads, a window opening from inside the body onto the outside world. It carries out a large number of essential functions to our wellbeing – as much physical as psychosocial – by enabling us, amongst other things, to bite, chew, smile, and speak…

 

Its condition gives an overall reflection of a person’s general state of health: deteriorating in someone who is unwell, or itself being the origin of more general complications if not adequately protected or cared for.

 

A healthy mouth relies on teeth being regularly cleaned and cared for, solid and healthy gums, and maintaining a natural balance of the oral flora.

Just like the intestines, our mouth contains millions of microorganisms:

bacteria, fungi… that live in perfect harmony (symbiosis) and help maintain good oral health. These “good bacteria” play a crucial role in keeping “bad bacteria” or other microorganisms (Candida) under control.
Inadequate oral hygiene, a build-up of plaque, tartar, a pH imbalance, dry mouth, as well as other factors such as infection, weakened immune defences, chronic illness, small injuries, smoking and drinking alcohol, can all lead to an imbalance in our oral flora (dysbiosis: when “bad bacteria” proliferate… leading to a risk of infection and/or a defence response: inflammation.

Every day our oral health is subject to multiple attacks; heat and cold, contact with all kinds of food, microtrauma from hard or sticky foods; poor brushing etc. Rich in blood vessels, it also reacts to the inner state of our bodies: posing many threats to the delicate oral balance and leading to inflammatory responses.

 

If we are not vigilant, these first signs of imbalance and inflammation risk going unnoticed or being neglected, leading to irreversible conditions.50% of Europeans suffer from gum disease, rising as high as 70 to 85% in people aged 60-65 years.

Caught early, it is reversible, but without treatment can worsen and lead to more serious problems right up to tooth loss.
