The Role Daily Oral Hygiene Plays In Gum Disease Prevention

When gum disease forms, your reaction is an important one. If you improve your daily oral hygiene routine, and discuss the matter with a professional, the condition can be reversed before gingivitis progresses and becomes harder to manage. If that progression does take place, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is prepared to offer services that help you manage the condition and protect your gums. Of course, while we are prepared to help people recover from the harm periodontal disease can do, we are also ready to help people maintain healthy gums. One thing we can do to help you is talk you through an oral care regimen that effectively prevents infection. We can also provide support in the form of Perio Protect to help you directly fight periodontal bacteria.

Fighting Plaque And Tartar Buildup Will Help You Prevent An Infection

Simply put, the work of brushing and flossing keep you safe against the oral bacteria that can infect your gums. How can you make sure these habits are working effectively for you? When performing both, it is important to make a point to clean at the base of your teeth so that bacteria at your gum line are removed. When brushing, this means working the bristles over the gum line. While flossing, make sure you bring the string all the way down to your gum line between teeth.

We Offer Preventive Services To Help With Periodontal Troubles

If you are showing signs of gingivitis, we can help by providing preventive periodontal care. Through a scaling and root planing, we can clear away the bacteria that are attacking your tissues before polishing the surfaces of your teeth. That polishing practice makes the area harder for bacteria to gather on. If your condition has progressed to periodontal disease, we may recommend supportive periodontal maintenance, a series of procedures that take care of bacteria buildup and help you avoid complications from periodontal disease.

Perio Protect Can Give You An Extra Advantage In Fighting Periodontal Disease

Could you use extra help in fighting periodontal bacteria? We can provide that support in the form of Perio Protect. Perio Protect provides you with a custom-made tray and antibacterial agents that fight the harmful agents attacking your gums. When used consistently, you can stop bacteria from growing and avoid problems from an infection.
