The most crucial action someone can take to prevent and treat periodontal disease is to maintain a good oral hygiene routine.

Ways to Keep Your Teeth and Gums Healthy

ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy campbelltown
Gum diseases can cause tooth loss and other, more severe issues.

You can avoid gum disease and possibly reverse its symptoms. These comprise:

Correct brushing

Proper brushing can help eliminate plaque and food bits caught between your teeth and gums. To do this, use a toothbrush with soft bristles. Remember to brush your tongue as well because bacteria might live there.

Compared to manual brushing, using an electric toothbrush can also help reduce the risk of acquiring plaque and gingivitis.

Replace the bristles on your toothbrush or heads whenever they fray or every three to four months.

Using toothpaste with fluoride
You can avoid tooth decay by feeding your tooth enamel with fluoride-containing toothpaste.

Teeth that have experienced minimal tooth decalcification can be repaired with fluoride.

Fluoride toothpaste is a wise choice for patients over the age of six.

If our younger patients are at a high risk of getting cavities, it is also a good idea for them.

Regular flossing
A daily flossing routine eliminates plaque and food particles that your toothbrush can’t reach.
Using mouthwash to rinse
Mouthwashes containing fluoride can slow down the formation of tartar, prevent or treat gingivitis, and minimise plaque, among other benefits.
Routine dental check-ups in Campbelltown
Regular visits to your Campbelltown dentist allow us to identify early signs of gum disease.

So, symptoms can be treated before they get worse.

Only a professional scale and clean at your dentist’s office in Campbelltown can eliminate stubborn tartar. Additionally, it can aid in removing plaque that is resistant to brushing or flossing.

Quitting smoking
Gum disease can be directly attributed to smoking. Smoking impairs our immune system, making gum infections more challenging to treat.

Additionally, smoking makes it difficult for infected or damaged gums to recover.

Along with these methods for maintaining healthy gums, your Campbelltown dentist will also go through nutrition and lifestyle recommendations for healthy gums and how to recognise the signs of gum disease.

What is gingivitis?
Red and swollen gums characterise gingivitis. When the gums are brushed, they frequently bleed.
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease comes in various forms, and they all affect the tissues surrounding the teeth. As the illness progresses, the jaw’s supporting bone is destroyed, causing the teeth to become looser.

The teeth may eventually fall out if neglected.

Is gum disease something I'll probably get?
Anyone with poor oral hygiene, such as those who don’t consistently clean and floss their teeth, are susceptible. Additionally, some persons are genetically predisposed to periodontitis more than others. Gum disease is more likely to affect you if one of your biological parents.
Can teeth be saved from periodontitis?
If you catch periodontal disease early and take care of your teeth with frequent cleanings and exams, you can save some of your teeth.
