Southport Dental | Brush Your Teeth and Gums

BrushingGumsIndianapolisA number of studies link gum disease to your overall health. Brushing your gums is just as important as brushing your teeth. When you brush your teeth, also brush gently into the gums in a circular motion. When you brush the gums in a circular motion, the brush gets into the pockets of the gum to remove and pull out bacteria.

Exercise care when brushing so as not to injure the soft gum tissue. It’s very easy to use too much pressure. Try to find and use a brush with extra soft bristles with rounded ends, which are perfectly adequate while reducing the chances of irritating your gums. The two most important gum care practices to use are regular teeth brushing and cleaning between your teeth to keep your teeth and gums healthy. This helps prevent both tooth decay and gum disease.

Our friendly and professional staff is always available to answer questions about your dental health and about the dental services we recommend for your treatment.

What our patients are saying about us.

5 STARS! ! Not only is Dr. Mills very professional and an excellent dentist,but his staff is right up there along with him in professionalism and concern for each individual patient. You could not ask for a more caring staff headed by a well-qualified dentist who is excellent when an anxious patient has to undergo oral surgery by having 8 or more teeth extracted in preparation for dentures. I cannot thank my married daughtger enough for telling my husband and I about Dr. Mills and his wonderful staff! Rating: ***** 5 STARS!!!!!
