Preventing Gum Disease: 4 Ways

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
Gum disease is a severe infection in the gums that can lead to tooth loss. It happens due to various reasons like poor oral hygiene, genetics, and certain health conditions. However, there are ways to prevent gum disease. Here are some of them: Practice Good Oral Hygiene Oral hygiene involves taking care of your mouth and teeth by brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist regularly. Good dental hygiene habits are essential for preventing gum disease and promoting overall health. Drinking fluoridated water can also help prevent tooth decay. Flossing involves using a unique string to clean the areas between your teeth. Ensure to floss at least once daily, and visit your dentist for regular checkups. Fluoride is a valuable mineral that helps prevent tooth decay. You can find fluoride in many foods and drinks, including water. Quit Smoking Smoking is one of the leading causes of gum disease. It damages the gums and decreases saliva production, which helps keep the mouth clean. Quitting smoking is the right thing you can do for your oral health. Eat a Healthy Diet A healthy diet is vital for overall health, including oral health. A balanced diet will contain the nutrients needed for strong teeth and gums. Eating various foods is essential, but avoid sugary snacks, drinks, and sticky foods that cling to your teeth. Sugary foods like candy and cake can cause cavities. Cavities are holes in your teeth that can become infected. Eating sugary foods in moderation is best and brushing your teeth afterward. Visit a Dentist for Regular Checkups A dentist can spot early signs of gum disease and help you nip the problem in the bud. Ensure to see any dentist at least once a year or more if you have a history of gum disease. Our dental clinic offers the best gum disease prevention tips.
