Gum diseases are infections caused by bacteria, along with mucus and other particles that form a sticky plaque on your teeth.
Three out of every ten children grind and clench their teeth. Most children experience this while under the age of 5 and the condition generally goes away by adolescence.
There are many toothpastes on the market that claim to whiten teeth. Make sure that any toothpaste you are using contains the necessary ingredients to actually clean your teeth as well. Ingredients such as fluoride that fight plaque and tartar are key to avoiding cavities.
