If you do have gum disease, this process can make your gums a little sore. Ideally, you want to eat foods that move your gums around on a daily basis. The more you do this, the healthier your entire mouth can become.
The Benefits of Eating Foods that Stimulate Your Gums
Foods that stimulate your gums, move them out of their natural position, at least a little bit. This means that blood is going to flood the gums after they have been moved around. This helps the gums stay healthier and better fight off any bacteria that was sitting on, or infiltrating the gum tissue.
Plus, when the foods push down on the gums, the part of your tooth that was covered by the gums becomes exposed. This allows the foods in the mouth to help remove any debris or plaque that has built up on that tooth where the gums kept it concealed. This allows you to have cleaner teeth, healthier gums, and an overall, healthier mouth.
Making foods that require extra effort to chew up properly, a regular part of your diet, can help to keep your gums, and the rest of your mouth, in a better state of health. If you want to know what state your mouth is currently in, contact our office today!
