Good gums are a must for a healthy smile and body. Your gums have several important jobs to do, including protecting your tooth roots from decay, helping you maintain proper dental alignment and accenting the appearance of your smile. They are also the first and best line of defense against the oral bacteria that can create serious problems for your general health.
