At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA dental practice, we are committed to helping patients manage the health of their gums. If you are already dealing with periodontal disease, or if you start to show signs of gingivitis, we can work with you to restore or manage your condition. What you should know is that addition to offering important services at our practices, we can actually give you the means to improve your periodontal care efforts at home! With Perio Protect, you will have the ability to directly apply antibacterial agents directly to your gums. These agents are effective for fighting the buildup of unwelcome microbes that put you at risk for gum disease.
Fighting Periodontal Bacteria At Home
You might not realize it, but an effective oral hygiene routine is already focused on keeping your gums healthy. Periodontal disease results from poor oral care, particularly when it comes to the efforts you make to clean your teeth at your gum line. Brushing and flossing effectively will help you clear away plaque before an infection can occur. With the additional aid of Perio Protect, you are able to directly target any bacteria that have gathered below your gum line and infected these tissues.
What Else Can You Do To Prevent Gum Disease On A Daily Basis?
While Perio Protect gives you a direct method of dealing with harmful microbes, you should not overlook your oral hygiene routine! If you want to make sure you are doing a good job defending your gum line, make sure you are spending at least two minutes on brushing each time you brush. When you floss, focus on this action, and make sure you are moving the string all the way down to the base of your teeth. Pay attention to what you are doing whenever you take care of your smile, as the symptoms of gingivitis – swollen or reddened gums, and bleeding – can be identified during your routine. Recognizing a problem and seeking care can ensure that the matter is dealt with before your condition can worsen.
We Can Help You Manage Ongoing Problems With A Periodontal Infection
Hopefully, a combination of good at-home care and Perio Protect will be enough to keep your gums in great shape. If you do find yourself needing additional treatment, we do provide services like ozone therapy, which can help destroy those harmful bacteria. We can also provide you with PRP therapy, which is used to encourage the growth of healthy tissues after damage from periodontal disease has occurred.
