We all know that if we want to prevent gum disease we need to practice a solid oral care routine. You know, brush twice a day, floss, limit sugar intake, etc. However, let’s add some new methods to your oral health routine that can aid in preventing gum disease.
According to PatientConnect265.com, Gingivitis and its advanced cousin, Periodontal disease, are silent offenders. Most often, you may not even know you should be concerned. After all, the serious problems take place beneath your gum line where you can’t see them. What’s worse is that a growing number of scientists believe that plaque and gum disease can also influence and exacerbate conditions like heart disease and stroke – certainly conditions we do not want to encourage by a lack of attention to good oral hygiene. So with no further ado, here are seven easy things you can do to help protect your mouth from gum disease.
1. Eat a healthier diet
Your waistline will not only thank you for indulging in a diet full of lean meat, veggies, and dairy, your teeth will too! The calcium, phosphorous, minerals, and vitamins do wonder for tooth enamel and your gum line.
2. Try an anti-microbial mouthwash
Try and find one without alcohol. Alcohol dries out your mouth. In other words, more saliva means better oral health.
3. Try an electronic toothbrush
Find an electronic toothbrush labeled by the American Dental Association (ADA). They’re more effective than you think and gives you an extra boost in those hard to get spots
4. Get Braces
Did you know that having straight teeth aids in reducing tooth decay and gum disease? Having straight teeth gets rid of any hideout spots where bacteria and plaque can grow and eliminates hard to reach spots when brushing.
5. Quit Smoking
