And it is very likely that you won’t think your gum bled because you have gum disease.
However, unknown to many, healthy gums should never bleed even when you brush. Healthy gums, that is, those that are taken good care of, should look pink and firm and not red and swollen.
WHY IS IT CRUCIAL TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR GUMS?
There are many reasons why you should take care of your gums, but the most important reason is
so that you could avoid gum problems, such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
In gingivitis, the milder of the two, your gums will appear tender and swollen and may sometimes
bleed. If not treated immediately, gingivitis may worsen and develop into periodontitis.
Periodontitis is an irreversible, serious gum infection that damages your soft tissue and destroys the
bone supporting your teeth, thus leading to tooth loss.
Aside from causing tooth loss, periodontitis may also weaken your bodily defenses and may lead to
other more serious diseases and infections, including heart disease, arthritis, and gastro-intestinal
According to the Department of Health, 78% of Filipinos have periodontitis or other gum disease, and many do not even know they have it. The good news is gum diseases can be prevented and treated in their early stages.
You can prevent gum disease by having a healthier lifestyle, exercising regularly, and maintaining
good oral hygiene, which means brushing and flossing your teeth every day and regularly visiting
Taking a gum supplement, such as Sensedol, will also help prevent gum diseases and maintain the
health of your gums.
“It is easier to treat patients who are in the earlier stages of gum disease,” says Dr. Arvin B. Laguna,
DMD, PhD, Professor of Periodontology. “Taking the right food supplement can help maintain the
health of your gums. It can also prevent the early symptoms of gum disease from worsening.”
Dentists nationwide prescribe Sensedol, the first food supplement in the Philippines that is focused on gum care, for the treatment and prevention of gum diseases.
Made in Korea, Sensedol is 100% natural and is made up of Zea mays L., which is an extract from a specific variety of corn native to North and South America.
You may think that since Sensedol is made from corn, you can just eat corn to get the same health benefits. However, although corn contains many vitamins and nutrients, the active ingredient in Sensedol comes from a concentrated form of the plant and can only be extracted using a specific, stringent process.
TAKE SENSEDOL 1-2 TIMES A DAY TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR GUMS
Sensedol helps not only promote the faster healing of the gums in cases of gingivitis and
periodontitis but also prevent these diseases. According to studies, improved gum health can be
seen in as early as 5.6 days upon taking Sensedol once a day.
Imagine this: you are brushing your teeth and you did not experience any gum bleeding. Your gums
are healthy and you don’t have to worry about gum infection. Take Sensedol 1-2 times a day to turn
this into reality.
“Sensedol is proven to be safe and effective,” says Dr. Maria Gemma Galang, DMD, General Dentistry of Orthodontics. “There is no other product in the market that has the same formulation. It’s the first and the only
supplement for the gums.”
Sensedol is available in all Watsons, Mercury Drug, St. Joseph Drug, Metro Pharmacy, and Ceciles Pharmacy branches nationwide. Visit and like Sensedol’s Facebook
