gums. Since these diseases can seriously affect a person’s life span and overall health, it’s
important to consult a dentist as soon pink spit and red floss appear.
One of the best ways to treat the condition is to remove the dental tartar and plaque buildup through
regular teeth cleanings. A qualified dentist is trained to perform this simple procedure.
Most regular teeth cleanings usually involve removing the plaque and tartar before the bacteria
recedes into the gum line, Ultimately, preventing the development of red floss or pink spit. Some
alternative treatment options include periodontal therapy, dental surgery, scaling, and root planing

• Brush the teeth with a soft toothbrush at least twice a day
• Start rinsing the mouth with anti-bacterial wash
• Discontinue the use of tobacco products

• Prevent the onset of plaque by regular flossing
• Consider using inter-dental devices like floss-picks to remove substances from teeth
• Consume healthy meals and avoid food high in sugar and carbohydrates
In order to ensure optimal oral health, these general guidelines should be followed in between
regular dental visits.
