How do I treat gum disease?

Do you suffer from painful gums? Maybe your dentist recommended that you should put some more time into keeping your teeth and gums clean to manage or avoid gum disease and other conditions affecting oral health. What are your options?

Managing Gum Disease

Whilst some conditions like periodontal disease may have no cure, patients can manage their conditions with diligent oral upkeep and regular visits to a dentist. If you suffer from periodontal disease, here are a few methods that may benefit your oral health:

  • Brush your teeth and gums twice a day
  • Floss and use mouthwash
  • Use a dentist-recommended toothbrush
  • Book routine visits to your dentist
  • Avoid smoking tobacco products
  • Eat a healthy diet, friendly to your body and overall oral health

Benefits of Enhanced Oral Upkeep

For those with ongoing conditions like periodontal disease, diligent upkeep can make a world of difference! A few benefits include:

  • Saved time and money in future visits to a dentist
  • Slowed or stopped further decay or infections in the gums or teeth
