Gum disease is, unfortunately, widespread among adults. However, the steps for preventing gum disease are actually relatively easy and straightforward. We have outlined some simple steps you can take every day to help prevent gingivitis or gum disease from developing.
Brush and Floss with Dedication
Adhere to a good oral hygiene schedule that includes flossing once per day and brushing a minimum of twice every day.
Visit Your Dentist Regularly
Book routine appointments with your dentist for dental cleans and check-ups and scaling and polishing when necessary. If you’ve already developed gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, we’ll likely recommend a more intense dental clean schedule and a thorough scaling and root planing in the dental clinic.
Straighten Your Teeth
Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth, and cleaner teeth can help you prevent gum inflammation and gum disease. We help patients create straighter teeth and better-aligned bites with orthodontic care in Budgewoi. We invite you to ask us about orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, if you’re interested in creating a healthier smile.
