Preventing Gum Disease

Gum disease is tricky. It appears without warning, even when you think you’re taking good care of your teeth and gums. This is why the American Dental Association urges everyone to see their dentist every six months for checkups and periodontal exams. It’s also critical that you take good care of your teeth and gums at home through a healthy brushing, flossing and rinsing routine.

To prevent gum disease in your mouth, brush your teeth at least twice daily. Use a fluoride toothpaste and replace your toothbrush when bristles show wear. Floss daily between your teeth, bridges, crowns, or implants. Use antimicrobial mouthwash each day, too.

Smoking is bad for your health in general, but it also causes gum disease. Thus, you should avoid smoking cigarettes or using other tobacco products. Eat healthy foods, avoid sugary and sticky sweets, and follow a healthy oral hygiene routine every day.
