Brush and floss every day after each meal and before going to bed. Don't use a lot of force, that just makes your gums bleed. Be sure to use mouth wash to kill of any germs and bacteria you missed with brushing and flossing. Also, be sure to visit the dentist every 6 months.

take more vitamin C and purchase a sonic tooth brush. Wash with Hydrogen Peroxide as a mouth wash. My dentist told me that I was going to need surgery to fix my gums and I did the above mentioned procedure and it totally fixed my problems. Buyers beware, it takes some getting used to.

just brush ya teeth morning and night with a good tooth paste.

Warm salt water makes your gums stronger and any antiseptic mouth wash will make them healthier. I use Listerine. It is good if you can handle it.

brush your teeth thrice a day, floss, and use listerine.


Kim
Brush your teeth twice a day and also use mouth wash, twice a day! Floss your teeth at night!

You should also eat a lot of apples and fruit where you bite into them and that will make them stronger as well as healthier!

Ask your dentist for a flouride mouth wash. Brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss(be sure not to cut your gums when you do this).


Cherriest
Make sure you have good oral hygiene by brushing 2-3 times per day and by flossing at least once per day. In addition to good oral hygiene, you need to make sure to see your dentist every 6 months for cleanings and exams.... tarter must be removed by your dentist as you cannot remove it yourself at home.

brush twice a day and floss once...use a whitning toothpaste with Fluoride if they are yelloish..if they are too bad visit a dentist and seek advice

Dental Student:
You pretty much need to floss and brush your teeth. But to have healthy gums too you really need to focus on your technique.

Brushing:
When brushing (soft bristle only, the harder ones tend to wear away your gums) hold the bristles at a 45 degree angle, directed around the gum line, and jiggle the tips in a circular motion. This will get rid of the dental plaque (yellow deposits filled with bacteria) that tends to accumulate in these areas. Remember to do this to the front and back of all teeth.

Flossing:
Toothbrush bristles are way too big to fit in between your teeth, which is why we use dental floss. Take about 30cm of floss and wind them around your middle fingers...now use your thumb and forefinger to control a small section of floss. Use this to slide in between each and every tooth to get rid of the plaque. Ensure you not only slide against the tooth but you also have to depress a little into the gums (2-3mm). It's a little tricky at first so you may need to do this in front of the mirror. It also takes most of us about 4-5 minutes to get right the first time, but with lots of practice, you should be able to complete it within 1 minute.

Rinsing:
Not really recommended normally for healthier gums. The supermarket ones kill the oral bacteria, but they tend to come back again, so there's really no point unless you just want fresh breath...

Final advice:
You may bleed to begin with, but if you continue with this ritual every night, you'll find that you will stop bleeding within 1 week. It's because you're giving the gums a chance to recover from the irritation caused by the constant bacterial load, and this takes about a week for the gums to recover.

So remember: brush twice daily with a soft bristle brush (ensure it's nice and new - it should be changed every 3 months at least). The most important brush is the nighttime one, just before you sleep. So this is also the ideal time to floss as well.

This may be difficult because of various reasons such as tartar (hardened plaque) that is stuck to your teeth, so you may need to see a dentist/hygienist to get rid of them first. This sort of cleaning may also be complicated if you have a medical problem such as prolonged bleeding. So your dentist may need to help you modify your cleaning method. Anyway, once all this is cleaned up you should be all ready to keep your gums all healthy and strong! In truth, the real difficulty is in keeping motivated to do this everyday. Just keep thinking that healthy gums, means good support for your teeth, which means your teeth will be less likely to simply fall out when you get older... Good luck! Hope this answers your question...
