What can I do to prevent gum disease?

Coming in for regular cleanings with one of our excellent dental hygienists will help keep your gums in great shape, but what you do at home matters as well. Brush twice daily and floss every evening. Our hygienists will be happy to show you good brushing and flossing technique.

Other steps you can take to prevent gum disease include:

  • Don't smoke or chew tobacco
  • Eat a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Use an antiseptic mouthwash. We'll be happy to recommend one.
  • If you have a health condition that can affect your dental health such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, please let us know so that we can take extra steps to help keep your gums healthy.

Dental offices are safe

There have not been any documented cases of coronavirus traced to a dental practice. Patient screening, PPE, social distancing, and the myriad of disinfection and sterilization procedures that have already been in place have been effective in preventing the spread of the virus.
