Why your gums are just as important as your teeth

While it’s a general fact that taking care of your teeth is important to keep you healthy, most people don’t realize that their gums are just as important to their overall health. Your gums are an essential part of your mouth, after all.

Periodontitis, which is a common gum disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss and has also been associated with a risk of serious diseases. This starts from swelling of gums and redness to complete destruction of the tooth’s bones, which is responsible for tooth loss.

As if that isn’t scary enough, it’s also been discovered over the years that people with periodontitis have a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia, and even pregnancy complications.

If you think brushing your teeth daily is enough to keep your gums healthy, you’re wrong.

The good news is there are many ways to easily prevent gum disease. Read on to know the tips on how to keep your gums healthy:

1.    Brush your teeth twice a day

2.    Floss daily

3.    Take Sensedol Everyday

 This is one of the excellent ways to prevent and treat gum problems. Sensedol is the first and only food supplement for the gums in the Philippines. It helps strengthen the gums to prevent oral problems such as gingivitis, periodontitis, receding gums, and mouth sores, to name a few. It also lessens oral pains and aids in minimizing gum bleeding from tooth extraction, adjustment of braces, and excessive brushing of teeth.

Sensedol can be purchased in leading drugstores nationwide by piece for 18 pesos, by 10 pieces for 180 pesos, and by box of 60 pieces for 1,080 pesos.


Looking after your oral health means taking good care of your teeth and gums. When you have healthy gums, you reduce the risk of dental decay, bad breath, and a lot of other harmful diseases. Follow these simple tips to prevent having oral problems in the future.
