Fortunately, most oral disorders come with signs. In the case of periodontal disease, the signs are red, swollen and tender gums. But what about when there are no warning signs? Are there still methods you can use to be on watch? Find out some additional information by continuing to read below, and feel free to ask us any further queries during your next exam.
The best thing you can do to prevent periodontal disease is to maintain healthy dental hygiene habits, including brushing your teeth with fluoridated toothpaste two times a day and flossing your teeth once daily. Additionally, both for prevention and for treatment, you should be stopping by our office at least once each half of a year. The team at Scheer Dentistry are skilled, highly trained professionals, and they will check your oral cavity to decide what type of periodontal disease treatment is suitable for your case. By brushing and flossing your pearly whites twice daily and visiting our office at least two times a year, you can do your part to keep all of your pearly whites anchored, helping your smile stay beautiful.
