Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, and gum disease is one of the most serious and dangerous dental issues in the world today. So, it’s important to prevent gingivitis as much as possible. To help you do so, Dr. Shannon De Vera and our dental team have some tips for you.
It’s important to keep up on oral hygiene regularly. This means you need to brush twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse daily. Make sure to brush for two minutes each time, floss every crevice of your smile, and rinse with antibacterial mouthwash. As you do these things, use hygiene tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association, and make sure you use thorough and careful techniques.
It’s also vital to visit Smile Big Pediatric Dentistry every six months for a routine dental cleaning. These cleanings provide the only treatment that can completely remove tartar from your smile, which is the toxic substance that promotes gum disease. So, make sure you do not delay your appointments.
