Taking Care of Your Teeth & Gums

*How often should I visit a dentist? You should visit a dentist at least twice a year. Getting regular cleanings & dental exams ensure the best chance of detecting early decay and disease that you may or may not feel. Catching these conditions early can help control them before they get worse.

*How often should I brush & floss? You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening before bed. You should also floss at least once per day.

Periodontal Disease

*What is periodontal disease? Periodontal or gum disease is an infection in the gum and bone that hold your teeth in place. Gum disease typically occurs when plaque builds up on the teeth and hardens, often due to poor brushing and flossing habits. The early stage of periodontal disease is when the gums become red and swollen, known as gingivitis. As the disease progresses, the gums can begin to bleed and gum recession will occur and eventually tooth loss.
