You might be wondering – what is the color of healthy gums? Actually, believe it or not, the color of your gums can tell us a lot about your overall health. We are familiar with the scenario of gums being something that’s overlooked until there’s a real issue at hand. Whether the problem lies in poor brushing and oral hygiene or some serious underlying health issue, if your gums don’t look like we’re going to describe in the following paragraph – maybe think about paying us a visit.

So, moving on to the topic of this article. What is the color of healthy gums you ask? Pink, always pink. If it looks like anything else, then we have an issue at hand.

If you notice that your gums bleed, you might have just hurt yourself while flossing or brushing. However, if the bleeding doesn’t stop and you notice that your gums are red and swollen, then you might have a periodontal, gum disease, known as gingivitis.

Still, no need to worry just yet, because the early signs of periodontal disease can be reversed with proper oral hygiene. If the problem persists and worsens, make sure to call your dentist and schedule and appointment to stop the disease in its tracks.
