Maintaining Dental Health
How can I prevent tooth decay and gum disease?
How does fluoride help prevent tooth decay?
What are the stages of gum disease? How is gum disease treated?
Gum disease has several stages. The initial stage is called gingivitis and is an infection of the gingival (gum tissue). In this stage, gums become red, swollen, and prone to bleeding. The underlying bone is unaffected. In later stages, however, gum disease can lead to bone loss and the loosening or even loss of teeth.
Gum disease treatment varies according to the stage of the disease. At its mildest stages, gingivitis can be treated by clearing plaque and tartar deposits from the gum pockets. Severe gum disease, on the other hand, might require treatment that includes bone and gum grafts.
General well-being requires having good oral and dental health
Good teeth result from a good foundation of healthy gums and oral tissues, strong bone support and healthy diet and lifestyle. Here are some recommendations on how you can be in charge of your dental health
- Schedule regular check-up and scale every six months
- Use soft-bristled tooth brush
- Brush your teeth, your gums and your tongue gently and thoroughly, spending at least 2 minutes two times daily
- First check-up for infants should begin when they start teething
A beautiful confident smile is acquired from knowing you have good oral and dental health
