How Can I Prevent Gum Disease?

Posted on 2/8/2021 by Matthew Martin
How Can I Prevent Gum Disease?Although periodontal disease is an oral pathology that can bring a ton of complications, it is also fortunately easily preventable. Generally, having excellent oral hygiene is enough to help prevent it, allowing you to maintain a beautiful and healthy smile.

Preventing Gum Disease Starts At Home

Gum disease is not painful, so it is quite easy to overlook it. Even if you do not have any noticeable symptoms, such as redness or swelling of your gums, it is still important that you continue to take care of your teeth. The best solution is always prevention. Brush your teeth properly for at least two minutes and twice a day; this will keep your teeth free of bacteria and tartar, which are the main cause of periodontal disease.

Likewise, flossing is essential, as your toothbrush cannot reach the places that the floss can. Although mouthwash will never be a substitute for a good brushing, it can help eliminate bacterial plaque. This means that the regular brushing, flossing and mouthwash combo is the perfect trio to prevent gum disease.

It Is Just As Important That Our Professionals Check Your Teeth

Regular professional dental cleaning is an essential part of preventing gum disease, as well. With the necessary tools, our team will completely remove tartar, which is where bacteria usually accumulate and damage your gums. If it does turn out that you need additional treatment, we can help advise you of this and come up with a treatment plan for you.

It is just as necessary that you take care of your general health, as well. Improving your lifestyle with a healthy diet, and taking care to avoid the use of tobacco products or alcohol, is especially important. To learn more about the best techniques that can allow you to take care of your teeth from home, please do not hesitate to call us today.
