Periodontal disease is caused by a multitude of aspects including bad oral hygiene, tooth decay, and an excessive amount of bacteria and plaque buildup.
The ramifications of periodontal disease include permanent tooth loss, gum pain, and teeth sensitivity. What most patients do not know is that periodontal disease is completely preventable! Dr. Haines highly recommends the following dental care tips that are guaranteed to prevent periodontal disease:
- Brush after every meal- To prevent the accumulation of plaque in the mouth, brush after every meal.
- Flossing is Key- Flossing removes plaque and food particles between teeth and the gum lines that cannot be removed by brushing. For this reason, flossing is key in preventing periodontal disease.
- Schedule regular appointments- According to Dr. Haines, 3 out of 4 people are unaware that they suffer from periodontal disease. For this reason, it is essential to schedule appointment where Dr. Haines can thoroughly examine your teeth. If you are suffering from periodontal disease, Dr. Haines will determine which periodontal services are ideal for your situation.
