New year's resolution help from gum disease experts

It is estimated that one third of people will break their new year resolutions by the end of January.

However, gum disease experts from Eludril and Elgydium have come up with an easy solution.

Most new year resolutions are connected with improving one's health but too many people set themselves unrealistic targets. Others lack the knowledge or willpower required.

Maintaining good oral health is one resolution that is vitally important because it affects so many other parts of the body – and fortunately it's a promise that is easy to keep.

'Skimping on basic oral healthcare can very quickly lead to gum disease, resulting in sore and bleeding gums, loss of teeth and even more serious conditions elsewhere in the body,' said a spokesman for Eludril mouthwash and Elgydium toothpaste.

'One easy way to safeguard our general health which fits easily into our daily routine is to improve the health of our teeth and gums.'

Research has shown that good oral hygiene plays an important role in maintaining long-term health. 

'Many health conditions have been linked to gum disease. People with gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease as those without gum disease.

'People with diabetes seem to suffer more from gum disease and this makes it very difficult for them to control their blood sugar levels.

'Pregnant women with gum disease may be seven times more likely to have a baby that is born too early and too small.

'And there has even been a link suggested between the incidence of gum disease and breast cancer.'

So how can we avoid these potential problems?

The advice from Eludril and Elgydium is as follows:
* Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes
* Floss every day to reach areas a toothbrush might miss
* Visit your dentist regularly to identify signs of gum disease and get them treated swiftly
* Replace your toothbrush regularly (every three months, or as soon as bristles look worn)
* Eat plenty of fresh vegetables; avoid starchy foods; avoid snacking between meals.
 
You should also look out for the following gum disease symptoms: 
· Sore gums or swollen gums can be early indicators of gum disease (often known as gingivitis)
· Bleeding gums, ironically a problem associated often with brushing the teeth, the very action that should be protecting teeth and gums
· Receding gums, a sign of serious gum disease left untreated for some time. 

As receding gums shrink back they reveal more of the root of the tooth – often leading to increased sensitivity and pain.

Worse than that, a receding gum line  will not hold teeth in place as firmly. They can gradually loosen, move and ultimately either fall out or have to be extracted. 

Quick, easy and effective treatments are available for those who have detected the early signs of gum disease. 

Experts from Eludril and Elgydium recommend visiting a dentist and asking about the best gingivitis treatment: 'Chances are they will recommend a chlorhexidine mouthwash.

'Chlorhexidine is an antibacterial ingredient proven to inhibit the harmful bacteria that cause and worsen gum disease.'

Eludril mouthwash – which contains chlorhexidine – is an antibacterial and analgesic solution used to prevent and treat gum disease by stopping the build-up of bacteria.

Choosing the right toothpaste is just as important. The Elgydium toothpaste range includes a regular anti-plaque paste with chlorhexidine to help prevent dental plaque and tartar build-up – the major causes of tooth decay and gum disease. 

There are also whitening, sensitive and decay protection toothpastes – but unlike many Whitening toothpastes, the whitening agent in Elgydium Whitening (sodium bicarbonate) is micropulverised to reduce harmful abrasion of the teeth.  

Elgydium Sensitive contains a new-generation fluoride called Fluorinol clinically proven to reinforce teeth against decay by binding to the enamel five times more effectively than ordinary fluoride. 

Elgydium Decay Protection also contains Fluorinol, as well as a special agent called siliglycol that keeps more fluoride on teeth ­– even after rinsing ­– to give day-long protection against decay.
