Preventing Gum Disease

Preventing Gum Disease at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry

This message from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle is about gum disease, and how you can prevent it.

Run your tongue along the gumline behind your lower front teeth. Do you feel a ridge? This is probably tartar, which is hardened plaque.

Even if you brush and floss regularly, plaque and tartar can accumulate. If not removed, these bacteria-breeding substances cause the gums to become irritated and swollen. Eventually, the gums become detached from the tooth, creating a pocket. This creates new space for plaque for grow. In advanced stages of gum disease, the toxins created by the bacteria literally rot the gum, teeth and bone.

So what can you do to prevent this from happening? The answer is two-fold:

  • First, brush and floss your teeth daily. Twice a day is best.
  • Get regular cleanings and check-ups.
