The Importance of
Developing and maintaining a good oral hygiene routine can
help prevent plaque and tartar buildup, which are the two main causes of
periodontal disease and tooth decay. Poor oral health allows billions of
bacteria to erode your teeth, which can lead to inflammation in other areas of
your body. We can help create an oral hygiene plan that works for you.
When bacteria in plaque build up between your teeth and
gums, inflammation occurs. If left untreated, it can cause the supporting bone
structure to deteriorate. While this can lead to tooth loss and gum recession,
it can also contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other serious
conditions. Periodontal disease can be prevented by making sure you add the
following habits to your oral hygiene daily routine:
Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
Rinse with mouthwash to remove remaining food
Floss between your teeth and along the gum line.
Quit smoking and maintain a healthy weight.
If you notice any changes in your gums or experience any
changes in your overall health, please call us. We are here to help!
