Expert Advice on the Prevention of Gum Disease

dca-blog-gum-disease_1200x630

Your dental health is important, so you need to be aware of how to prevent dental damage. Use these helpful hints to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Preventing Dental Distress

Treating gum disease can be difficult, so you’re better off preventing the problem before it starts. If you happen to develop gum disease and don’t seek treatment, it can advance into a severe form called periodontal disease that attacks the gums and bones of your teeth. To save yourself from this suffering, embrace these healthy habits for the prevention of gum disease:

Better Brushing

Proper oral hygiene is a must in the prevention of gum disease. It’s important to brush your teeth, gums, and tongue at least twice a day to remove trapped food and bacteria. To make sure that you’re brushing your best, ask about brushing techniques when you visit your family dental clinic.

Frequent Flossing

Many people forget to floss, but you need to practice this hygiene habit at least once a day to reach the particles caught within your teeth. Your toothbrush can only reach so much, which means flossing is essential to remove remaining bacteria.

Mouth Rinse is a Must

For additional dental protection, try using an anti-bacterial mouth rinse. There are many varieties, so ask your family dental clinic which mouth rinse is best for your needs.

Discover Your Dental Risk

Periodontal disease can strike anyone at any time, but certain factors may make you more vulnerable. These include age, diet, genetics, smoking, and major health conditions. Make sure to discuss these factors with your dentist to help reduce your risk.

Professional Protection is a Plus

Wouldn’t you rather take care of your dental health than worry about treating gum disease? A dental professional can be your best defense. First of all, get regular professional check-ups and cleanings. Also, get an annual periodontal examination to detect any symptoms and determine your risk.
