Did you know that many people (including myself), tend to overlook their gums when it comes to oral health, and instead focus on having whiter teeth? Well it’s true, and that’s a bad thing apparently. A study done by the Health Promotion Board shows that 80% of Singaporeans suffer from some form of gum disease and it is one of the two most common diseases that affect our oral cavity.

Healthy teeth require healthy gums, and if you don’t take care of your gums, it will lead to gum diseases – an inflammation of the gums that can progress to affect the bone that surrounds and supports your teeth, and eventually toothlessness.

Gum disease typically starts with bacteria in the mouth building up and forming plaque, which is a sticky colourless film that forms on the teeth. When plaque is not removed properly, it may lead to varying stages of gum diseases. 

Common symptoms of gum disease include pain in the gum area, pain when chewing, bad breath, teeth sensitivity due to gum recession, bleeding and swollen gums.

Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, which is why it is crucial to take care of your gums, and this is why Darlie launched their new Expert Gum Care range, made specifically to tackle gum problems and help to protect gum health.

Here’s a quick look at the new gum care range:

The new range comes with two toothpaste options – Darlie Expert GumCare Odour Control Toothpaste promises 12 hours of odour control protection for longer-lasting fresh breath. And the Darlie Expert GumCare Sensitivity Relief Toothpaste with fast sensitivity relief for sensitive teeth in two weeks.

But what’s the point of a good toothpaste if you don’t have a good brush right? Which is why they also launched their new Darlie High Density and High Density Charcoal gum care toothbrushes with 350% times denser bristles enabled by their advanced square-shaped tufting technology, for soft and velvety bristles that gently massages your gums as they deep clean, even in-between your teeth. 

And to finish things off is the new Darlie Salt Gum Care Mouthwash which is alcohol fee, reduces plaque buildup, kills 99.9% bacteria, and keeps away bad breath.

Darlie’s new Gum Care range is available at leading supermarkets, Watsons, Guardian and Darlie Official Stores on Redmart, Lazada and Shopee.
