Trusted Tips for Preventing Periodontal Disease

dca-blog-gum-disease_1200x630

Have you been diagnosed with periodontal disease? Well, this advanced type of gum disease is common and affects most adults at some point in their lives. Use these helpful hints to soothe and improve the condition.

The Cause is a Sticky Subject

Gum disease is the initial form of periodontal disease. It’s usually caused by plaque, a sticky substance that develops on your teeth every day. If not removed with daily dental care, then it can inflame and infect the tender gums that support your teeth. If you don’t get professional treatment, it can advance into periodontal disease and severely damage your teeth and gums. Since it’s easiest to treat at an early stage, call an affordable dentist if you notice signs of a possible problem.

Signs that Point to Periodontal Disease

Interestingly, some people don’t know they have periodontal disease until they see a dentist because they never see any signs. Others have many clear symptoms that indicate an issue. If you notice any of these symptoms, see an affordable dentist immediately to protect your dental health. The most common signs include:

  • Swollen, red gums
  • Gums that bleed, especially when brushing and flossing
  • Receded gums
  • Ongoing bad breath
  • Change in bite alignment
  • Loose teeth
  • Discomfort with dentures

Prevention of the Problem

Save yourself from the pain and problems of gum disease by developing good dental habits. Follow these simple steps to keep your smile safe and healthy:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, particularly after meals.
  • Floss every day.
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Don’t use tobacco.
  • See an affordable dentist for regular dental check-ups and cleanings.
