Oral-B Gum and Enamel Repair Toothpaste
Did you know that the root causes of many oral care problems actually start at the gums? Healthy gums are firm, and pale pink and fit tightly around the teeth. Unhealthy gums may be swollen, red, sensitive, and become irritated when brushing or flossing.
When your gums are in poor condition it affects the health of your teeth. That’s because when bacteria, food, and plaque build up above and below the gumline it begins to affect the health of your teeth, especially the enamel.
Plaque devolopes as a results of a chemical reaction in your mouth. When you eat carbohydrates and foods with high sugar content the particles combine with the bacteria in your mouth to create an acid.This acide contributes to breaking down the tooth’s enamel. This acid then combines with more food particles and saliva and turns into a sticky, hard substance known as plaque. Over time, these processes can cause erosion of enamel which leads to tooth decay and gum disease.
