Preventing Periodontitis

Published on November 10th, 2019

Periodontal disease occurs when bacteria in plaque build up between your gums and teeth. If the bacteria stick and begin to grow, it leads to inflamed gums. Visit our best dentist near Lakeview to treat your periodontitis to keep your bone structure intact. Continue reading for some tips on how to prevent periodontal disease in the first place.

Brush Your Teeth

After you eat a meal, be sure to brush your teeth, gums, tongue, and even the inside of your cheeks in order to rid your mouth of all bacteria. Brushing will help to remove the food particles and plaque from your teeth and gums.

Floss Daily

While it’s not always the case, we should all be flossing at least once a day. Flossing can help us get rid of the excess debris and plaque that our toothbrush can’t reach. 

Use Mouthwash

Mouthwash is an added bonus to help reduce plaque. Swishing around the minty liquid will remove food particles and freshen your breath.

Be Aware Of Added Risks

The risk of periodontal disease can be potentially higher in those who smoke, who are older in age, or even from genetics. Make sure you talk to your dental professional about all these things when you visit us for your bi-yearly cleanings.
