Prevention is obviously better than cure. In order to prevent Gingivitis, that can lead to inflammation of the gums, and can ultimately progress to periodontitis and even tooth loss, toothpaste manufacturers, recommend regular brushing with their particular brand of toothpaste.   According to the 2017 study (1), Spirulina appears to help reduce dental plaque and gingivitis.
