The secret to a beautiful smile lies within a healthy oral routine. Twice-daily brushing and flossing accompanied by regular dental visits helps reduce the risk of discomfort, swelling and periodontal disease.
What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is when the gums become red and swollen and pull away from the teeth to form pockets, or spaces, that become infected. Left untreated, this disease can destroy the health of your mouth and lead to tooth decay and loss.
What are Common Symptoms?
Common symptoms of periodontal disease include red and swollen gums, chronic bad breath and tenderness when brushing or flossing. If you regularly experience any of these problems, please schedule an appointment with us and we’ll work to figure out the root cause of the situation and provide treatment options.
How can I Prevent it?
By treating your teeth and gums with daily care, you can be on your way to preventing periodontal disease from affecting your health. We recommend a routine that includes:
- Brushing twice a day
- Flossing once a day
- Bi-annual dental visits
- Rinsing with mouthwash
