How to Keep Your Smile Free From Gum Disease

Posted .

Your dentist, Dr. Edmon R. Hutchison, cares for you, your smile, and your oral health, which is why they strongly encourages you to do everything you can to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Unfortunately, there are many things that can destroy your smile if you let them, and one of those things is gum disease. It’s best to prevent gum disease as much as possible. To help you do so, our dentist is happy to share some tips with you:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: You need to brush your teeth twice a day, floss your teeth once a day, and rinse your mouth daily. As you do these things, use a soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, floss that is easier to use, and antibacterial mouthwash. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing can help you remove plaque from the surfaces of and cracks between your teeth as well as along the gumline.

-Visit your dentist: This is very important because the cleaning treatment provided removes the plaque and tartar that your oral hygiene routine could not eliminate. Our special techniques will save your smile and help you have the clean and healthy teeth and gums you need.
