It’s very important to prevent gum disease. Gum disease is a serious and dangerous dental issue that can severely affect your smile, oral health and even your entire health. It can result in some serious and scary consequences. This is why our dentists, Drs. Adrian Huang and Preston Huang strongly encourage you to keep gum disease at bay. To help you do so, they are happy to give you the tips you need. Those tips are:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s strongly recommended to brush your teeth twice a day (with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride/abrasive toothpaste), floss your teeth once a day (with waxed floss or another product that is effective and easy to use) and rinse your mouth daily (with antibacterial mouthwash). Your oral hygiene routine can remove the bacteria and plaque that promote gum disease daily.
-Attend your regular dental checkups: Dental cleanings are essential when preventing gum disease. This is because the tools and techniques your dental team use remove the stubborn and stuck plaque and tartar that your oral hygiene routine cannot remove. It’s very important to remove these dangerous substances regularly, so make sure to attend your checkups every six months.
