• Avoid taking sugary sodas and instead start taking enough amounts of water and fruits. Things for which you like taking soda can cause problem for your teeth. Using water and fruits you can have a much healthier alternative. If you still have that crave for soda, try out a lemon with water, or by adding some berries. With this you can have a double impact. That is, not only intake of water and fruits avoid sugars that can from forming acids that can wear down your teeth, you will be also reducing some big amount of calories from your diet.

• It is best to order water along with whatever drink you buy. Remember that water turns out to be great for your body, mouth and teeth. At times it is OK to have other kinds of beverages, but you should always clean your mouth afterwards. This is because water can help you prevent these sugary drinks from remaining and creating bad breath and finally causing tooth decay. It will also help you to keep your teeth away from stains.


• Avoid chewy candies or other hard sweets. By saying this, we don’t want to dishearten our sweet lovers. Sugar is not bad for you. It is the acids that are produced when bacterial actions starts happening in your mouth and breaks down the left over sugar. This happens mainly when sugar stays around for a long time in your mouth. This is why we recommend avoiding chewy candies as that can be bad for teeth. Avoid them from your snacks or make sure that you thoroughly clean your teeth as soon as you have them.


• Switch normal chewing gums with Xylitol gum. This is the simplest way to avoid sugar, in case you are too much addicted to chewing gums. Xylitol is as sweet as sugar, but the bacterial action taking place in the mouth can’t break it down. This lessens the chance to have bad breath and tooth decay. Chewing gum as such is good for your mouth as it keeps your mouth moisturized, offer freshness in your breath, and prevents cracking of the tongue and gums.

Start following these simple steps in your daily life and be free from unwanted dental visits. If you still feel that this is not enough to protect your teeth from decay, just schedule an appointment with Smilestation, Indiranagar, Bangalore anytime in the day using our online scheduling tool.

Having a bleeding gum might be one of the most unpleasant dental experiences, and may lead to other dental problems because, a person with bleeding gums tend to ignore the proper care of their teeth due to the persisting pain in the gums.


Don’t let this happen to you. If you find any symptoms of gum bleeding it is best to schedule an appointment with your dentist. Before that lets look at ways through which you can identify gum bleeding. Below we discuss some of the reasons that may cause bleeding of gums.

Brushing Hard

Some people apply a lot of pressure while brushing. If you do the same when you brush your teeth, there are chances you may lead into gum problems. Remember that you don’t have to dig into your mouth to clean your teeth. To lessen the impact or the pressure it is good to switch your toothbrush to your non-dominant hand.

Incorrect Way of Brushing

Generally people brush their teeth using a back-and-forth motion, which is actually a wrong way to brush your teeth. You need to brush up and down or in small circular motion to avoid gum irritation.

Use of Wrong Toothbrush

While buying a toothbrush, people do not focus on the type and the firmness of the bristles. You need to make sure how firm are they. In case you feel discomfort in your gums, try switching your toothbrush with soft-bristled ones as this may help you to ease your discomfort.

No Brushing and Flossing

Even if most of us do not stay with brushing regularly, still flossing is what most of us forget to do. In case it has been a long time since you flossed or even brushed, this can definitely lead to gum bleeding and other dental problems. If proper care is not taken during this time, you cannot resist your dental visit anymore. If you still feel that it is not necessary, remember that this can lead you to dental infections like gingivitis or periodontitis that needs to be treated as soon as possible.

If you feel that there are symptoms of gum bleeding, then visit Smilestation in Indiranagar, Bangalore to make sure your bleeding gums will not lead into something more serious. You can also schedule an appointment whenever you feel the necessity, online.
