Regular dental screening visits
Good oral hygiene
A balanced diet
Regular dental exams
Get regular dental cleanings from a dentist or hygienist. Brush and floss daily to reverse gingivitis - a mild form of gum disease where the gums become red and bleed easily. This removes the plaque and tartar, which becomes harmful when it is left on your teeth.
Visit the dentist to prevent gingivitis, which can turn into periodontitis - a disease where infections occur between pockets that form in between the gums and teeth. Periodontal disease can cause damage to the bones that support the teeth, and it can eventually destroy bones, gums, or tissue. Teeth removal may then become necessary.
