Gingivitis Combat Tips

Posted .

You deserve a strong and healthy smile. Unfortunately, there are things in this world that can attack your teeth and gums and prevent you from having the smile you deserve. One of those things is gingivitis, which is the first stage of gum disease—a dental issue that is severely dangerous for your entire health. Fortunately, there are things you can do to combat gingivitis in Humble, Texas, and Dr. David Umansky is happy to tell you those things.

First, you need to clean your smile regularly. It’s best to do so by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing your teeth once a day, and rinsing your mouth daily. As you do these things, make sure to brush for two minutes each time, floss between every tooth and along the gumline, and rinse with antibacterial mouthwash. It’s also recommended to use oral hygiene tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association. That way you’re using tools that are safe and effective.

The last thing you need to do is visit Aesthetic Dentistry Associates regularly for your dental cleaning appointments. This is extremely important because the cleaning treatment provided can completely remove tartar from your teeth, which is the toxic substance that promotes gingivitis development. Your oral hygiene routine cannot completely remove this substance from your teeth and gums. So, make sure to keep up with your appointments.
