Leave bleeding gums behind with Corsodyl Toothpaste

In my younger days I worked as a Dental Nurse, so the importance of having great oral health is something that is as important to me as getting my eyebrows threaded.

Visiting the dentist is so much more than just checking to see if you need a filling. Sat in the chair listening to as string of random numbers and words while the dentist prods and pokes your teeth and gums. These numbers and words not only relate to each tooth and different part of the mouth, but also the condition of your gums.

Gum Disease

Did you know that gum disease effects about 50% of adults worldwide? What a crazy figure! When you think that toothbrushes and toothpaste can be bought at very little cost. Do your gums bleed after brushing or flossing your teeth? If they do, you have the first signs of gum disease. Now is the time to start addressing these issues, before the problems get worse and lead to possible tooth loss.

Gum disease comes in 5 stages:-

  1. Bleeding Gums – Caused by plaque, which constantly builds up on your teeth, if not removed by brushing and flossing can lead to bleeding gums.
  2. Bad Breath – No-one wants bad breath, especially on an important day. Plaque starts to break down the tiny pieces of food in your mouth, which can release an unpleasant smelling gas. Hence the bad breath.
  3. Swollen Gums – As plaque builds up on the gum line, it causes inflamed gums, which become red and swollen.
  4. Receding Gums – As the plaque builds up and forms pockets between your teeth, the gums pull back from the gum line and expose the root beneath.
  5. Tooth Loss – If you leave bleeding gums untreated for a prolonged period of time it can lead to you loosing teeth. Not nice and certainly not pretty to look at.

My Oral Health

Now, I wouldn’t say I am best at flossing my teeth on a daily basis. However I make sure I do at least twice a week. I have always tried to maintain a good level of oral health, sometimes when I have been poorly and rundown, I suffer with occasional bleeding gums. Like so many other people, after a couple of days of looking after my teeth and gums it has all cleared up.

Corsodyl Toothpaste

Recently, I suffered with a very sore mouth. I had many painful ulcers all over my Buccal Mucosa (the inner cheeks), under my tongue and on the roof of my mouth. Not forgetting my sore and swollen tongue. This nasty mouth issue came on very quickly, starting with a couple of little ulcers, then before I knew it I was unable to eat and could drink very little. Great for the waist line not so good for a healthy lifestyle. So, after a couple of days of struggling to get a tooth brush to my teeth, I purchased some Corsodyl treatment mouth wash. Before I knew it, by using the mouth wash a couple of times a day, my mouth was so much better. I was able to eat again and more importantly look after my teeth and gums.

OnlyΒ using it for a couple of days at a time. I love using Corsodyl treatment mouth wash when I have soreness or irritation within my mouth. I have also recommended it to many friends. In fact in the dental practice it was something that the dentists also recommended to patients on a regular basis.

Corsodyl Toothpaste

Since then, Corsodyl have released a range of toothpastes, designed for daily use to help stop and prevent bleeding gums. Corsodyl’s daily fluoride toothpaste targets the bacteria that builds up along the gum line causing bleeding gums. It’s proven to be four times more effective at removing plaque than normal toothpaste.

Corsodyl Toothpaste

I have been using Corsodyl’s new Ultra Clean toothpaste for a couple of weeks now. I don’t think my mouth has every felt so fresh and clean after brushing. It has a very strong minty flavour, almost too much, it took a couple of brushes to get used to the sensation of this toothpaste. So many toothpastes are now gel style, with various ‘whitening’ elements, gritty or white flecks, this is really a paste. Slightly pink in colour and smells very fresh when you open it up. I haven’t had any other mouth issues since using this, it could just be that i’m feeling quite healthy right now, so no ulcers or it could be the toothpaste. Either way Im really happy using this toothpaste and I shall continue to do so.

Do you suffer with mouth problems? Why not try Corsodyl toothpaste to help leave bleeding gums behind.

Leaving long hair down creates an elegant wedding look. Curling your hair into loose waves, and arranging them off to one side enhances this style. Just add some delicate earrings to complete the look. Adding a floral crown would give that whimsical feel that it very on trend right now.

There are fewer brides than ever having a veil on their wedding day. They now seem to be to worn for Church weddings but less so for civil ceremonies. However, mini veils are being used an alternative. Often for those quirky brides who want a bit of tradition but also like to look different. They are also really popular for retro wedding themes.

Flowers

wedding hair trends for 2017

Flower crowns are not only seen on young flower girls, but on brides as well. This comes from an increase in outdoor, whimsical, woodland weddings. Which are becoming more popular. These stunning crowns are unique to each and every bride because they are freshly made to match your bridal bouquet. I can see these being increasingly popular over the next few seasons.
