Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is caused when bacteria in plaque (a sticky, colorless film that forms in the mouth) builds up between the gums and teeth. When the bacteria begin to grow, the gums surrounding the tooth can become inflamed.

 

The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to take care of your teeth, gums, and overall health. Good oral hygiene starts with:

  • Brushing your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste; once in the morning and before bedtime.

  • Flossing your teeth once daily, preferably before bedtime

  • Using a mouthwash can help reduce plaque and can remove remaining food particles that brushing and flossing missed.

  • Eating a balanced diet; limiting candy, sweets, sugary drinks and fruit juice.

  • Abstaining from tobacco products.

  • Getting regular checkups and cleanings at our office.
