As you may already know, gum disease is extremely dangerous for your smile. It can severely irritate your gums and it can also cause loose and lost teeth if it’s not treated. If you wish to prevent this disease as much as possible, our Fountains Family Dental Center team is here to help you! You will be on the right track if you do the following things:
Keep up on oral hygiene
Oral hygiene will help you remove the plaque from your smile each and every day, which will help prevent the disease. Therefore, oral hygiene is extremely important. So, please remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth with mouthwash daily.
Attend your dental exams
The only way to effectively and successfully prevent gum disease is with a dental cleaning. This is because our dental team will use special tools to remove the plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and from below the gumline. It’s vital to have a cleaning every six months, so please remember to attend your cleanings.
Have a healthy diet
Your teeth will have a better chance of preventing gum disease if you have a healthy diet. Having a healthy diet will keep your teeth healthy and strong and it will give your chompers the ability to fight off dental issues. So, it’s best to eat healthy foods as much as possible and refrain from eating starchy and sugary foods.
