If you are interested in avoiding gum disease, then you’re on the right track toward optimal oral health and a top-notch smile. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to keep gum disease at bay, and it’s best to do those things regularly. Our dentist, Dr. Rob Holdridge, is happy to help you prevent gum disease by giving you the tips you need. Those tips are:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s very important to brush every morning and night as well as floss and rinse daily. Doing these things helps remove the harmful bacteria (plaque) from the teeth and gumline. It can even help you kill the bacteria in your mouth that have the potential of creating plaque. So, make sure to clean your smile regularly.

-Visit your dentist: Your regular dental cleaning is vital when preventing gum disease. This is because our tools and techniques will remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline. Your oral hygiene routine won’t be able to completely clean your smile, which is why dental cleanings are necessary.
