Gums are also called gingivae. Gums are made of the soft pink tissue that connects at the base of your teeth.

Bacteria is present in our mouths all the time. The warm, moist atmosphere makes it an ideal location for all types of bacteria, from those which keep us healthy to those that make us sick or cause dental problems. In fact, there are often more than 70 types present in our mouths at any one time. When we brush our teeth, we remove some of the bacteria in our mouths which helps to keep levels of these organisms under control.
