To keep your oral cavity from developing periodontal disease, you should brush twice a day and floss once per day. Keeping your chompers and gums healthy is our number one priority at Ninth East Dental, so we’ve put together this information on how you can steer clear of gum disease.

Periodontal disease is an oral condition caused by uncontrolled acids onset on chompers and gums. An early symptom of periodontal disease is red, bloody and/or swollen gums, but left untreated, gum disease can evolve to a more serious form that causes tooth loss. Practicing great dental hygiene is the best method to treat milder types of gum disease, but severe types of periodontal disease necessitate professional procedures.

To avert the advance of gum disease, there are lots of things you can do. Brushing your chompers twice per day and flossing your pearly whites at least one time per day top our list, and you can also deliberate on using an oral cavity flush to support you as you remove the plaque on and between your teeth and gums. As always, it’s also imperative to come into our office at least once every half of a year for professional cleaning; hardened plaque (referred to as tartar) will need to be removed by professional hygienists. And don’t smoke or chew tobacco if you want to thwart periodontal disease.
