• Understanding Periodontal Disease

    Making sure your gums are healthy is very important.

    Our office will work with you to prevent and treat if necessary periodontal diseases. Preventative care can help you maintain the healthy smile you love. Receding gums are a common problem. It is recommended that you maintain a healthy lifestyle, including brushing and flossing in addition to eating healthy foods in order to prevent gum recession. Gum recession creates ‘gaps’ and ‘pockets’ that form near the gum line. Without intervention, bacteria grow in these areas and tissue and bone deteriorate until the tooth is lost.

    Preventative Quick Tips:

    • Use a soft toothbrush
    • Make small, circular movements as if you were brushing each tooth one at a time.
    • Brush front, back and tops of teeth with toothbrush.
    • Make sure bristles of toothbrush enter all crevices between teeth.
    • Floss two times daily!
    • Brush for two to three minutes every day before breakfast and after dinner.
    • Replace toothbrush every three months.
    • Visit your dentist regularly.
