Watching for Gum Disease When There Aren’t Signs

Posted .

Luckily, most dental diseases come with warning signs. In the case of periodontal disease, the signs are usually red and tender gums. But what about when there are no warning signs? Are there still ways you can be on guard? Find out more information by reading on below, and feel free to ask us any further inquiries during your next exam.

The best thing you can do to foil gum disease is to retain healthy oral hygiene habits, including brushing your teeth with fluoridated toothpaste two times per day and flossing your pearly whites once daily. Additionally, both for prevention and for treatment, you should be coming into our office at least once each six months. The team at E. Morgan Scheiber & Associates are highly trained professionals, and they will inspect your oral cavity to determine what type of periodontal disease treatment is appropriate. By brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily and visiting our office at least twice a year, you can do your part to keep all of your teeth in place, helping your smile stay beautiful.
