Is your gum bleeding when you brush your teeth? If yes, then you probably have gum disease.
Unknown to many, healthy gums should never bleed when you brush your teeth. Healthy gums, or those that are properly taken care of should look pink and firm, not red and swollen.
It is vital to take care of your gums to avoid gum problems, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Gums with gingivitis appear tender and swollen, and may sometimes bleed. Periodontitis, on the other hand, is an irreversible, serious gum infection that damages soft tissue and destroys the bone supporting your teeth, thus leading to tooth loss.
Aside from tooth loss, periodontitis may also weaken your bodily defenses and may lead to other more serious diseases and infections, including heart disease, arthritis, and gastro-intestinal disease.
The bad news is according to the Department of Health, 78 percent of Filipinos have periodontitis or other gum disease, and many do not even know they have it. But the good news is gum diseases can be prevented and treated in their early stages.
Healthy lifestyle, regular exercise, good oral hygiene, and regular visits to the dentist can help prevent gum disease. Taking a gum supplement, such as Sensedol, promises to help in maintaining the health of your gums.
Made in Korea, Sensedol is a 100 percent natural supplement made from Zea mays L., an extract from a specific variety of corn native to North and South America. Its active ingredient comes from a concentrated form of the plant and can only be extracted using a specific, stringent process.
Sensedol helps not only to promote the faster healing of the gums in cases of gingivitis and periodontitis but also to prevent these diseases. According to studies, improved gum health can be seen in as early as 5.6 days upon taking the supplement once a day.
“It is easier to treat patients who are in the earlier stages of gum disease,” posits Dr. Arvin B. Laguna, DMD, PhD, Professor of Periodontology. “Taking the right food supplement can help maintain the health of your gums. It can also prevent the early symptoms of gum disease from worsening.”
Sensedol is available in leading drugstores nationwide.
