Drop Tobacco To Protect Your Gums!

How do you know if you are taking good care of your gums? At every routine dental exam, you can receive helpful updates about your periodontal health. If you have a history of problems with your gums, you can turn to your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist for support. One thing we can do for you is help you identify changes in your daily life that will benefit you. If you currently use tobacco products, you should know that they can make you more likely to experience problems with gingivitis that can turn into more advanced gum disease.

Are Your Daily Behaviors Making It Harder To Preserve Your Periodontal Health?

The choices that you make on a daily basis will affect your ability to protect yourself against problems like dental decay and gum disease. Brushing and flossing can have clear benefits, but you should look out for behaviors that have negative consequences. Tobacco products can create trouble for your gums, as they can make you more likely to experience infections that can worsen and create long-term difficulties.

Make Sure Your Smile Care Routine Keeps Your Smile Safe

When you cut tobacco products from your life, you can reduce your risk for gingivitis and gum disease. While this is important, it is just one of many actions that you should take if you truly want to protect your smile. Keep up with good brushing and flossing habits on a daily basis. When you do so, you can control the formation of plaque and tartar, which protects you against an infection. Flossing can be more important than many people realize. If it is not included in your daily routine, it will be harder for you to stop particles from gathering in the spaces between your teeth.

Worried About Your Gums? We Can Perform A Diagnostic Review

Through a diagnostic review of your periodontal tissues, Dr. Kania can determine if you need help managing trouble with your gums. Through a timely scaling and root planing, we can remove harmful bacteria from below your gum line to stop an infection from worsening. If periodontal disease affects you, we can start supportive periodontal maintenance appointments to control the condition and prevent complications.
