Tips to slow or prevent gum disease.
Gum disease is a slow-progressing disease. With proper care for your teeth and gums, it’s quite possible you’ll be able to slow or even stop it from progressing.
Here are some tips to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums:
Schedule regular dental exams and tooth cleanings.
Your dentist has special equipment to help remove the tooth build up that regular brushing and flossing can’t.
Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing twice daily.
In between your dentist visits, be sure to brush and floss at least twice a day to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
Genetics, pregnancy, diabetes and certain medications can make you more susceptible to gum disease.
Please discuss any family history, current conditions or medications you’re taking with your dentist.
Stop smoking and other tobacco use.
