What Can I Do To Make Gum Disease Prevention Easier?

When you brush and floss, do you take time to examine your gums and look for any signs of gingivitis? Is your oral hygiene routine keeping bacteria from gathering at the base of teeth to stop infections from occurring? You maintain your first line of defense against periodontal problems on a daily basis by fighting the buildup of oral bacteria on your teeth. If an infection does occur, you can fight it through good daily habits and preventive dental services. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is here to support you if you have struggled to avoid periodontal problems, or if you are already dealing with a potential infection. If action is taken in time, you can avoid long-term complications from periodontal disease that can lead to tooth loss and other issues.

Is Your Oral Hygiene Routine Effectively Protecting Your Gums?

If your oral hygiene routine is effective, it will protect you against the buildup of bacteria and food debris that leads to plaque and tartar formation. The buildup of harmful microbes can cause problems with tooth decay as well as gum disease. Many people become vulnerable to infection because their brushing and flossing, while consistent, is not effective at cleaning the spaces where their teeth and gum line meet.

Adding Perio Protect To Your Routine

If you have struggled to avoid gingivitis in the past, or if you want to make sure you have no future issues with infection, you can add Perio Protect to your routine. Perio Protect provides you with antibacterial agents and custom trays that allow you to apply these agents. With this step included in your oral hygiene routine, you can directly target the bacteria that create problems with periodontal disease.

Worried You Have A Problem With Your Gum Health? Schedule A Review With Your Periodontist

If you want to make sure your gums are treated properly, or if you worry that an infection has grown too serious for treatment from a general dentist, you can make an appointment at our practice for care. We use advanced diagnostic imaging tools to study your gums and determine what kind of difficulties you face. Once these problems are identified, we can arrange the appropriate treatment. That may mean performing a scaling and root planing to stop an infection from worsening, or it could mean performing more advanced work to stop periodontal disease from causing more serious troubles.
