Do you want a strong and healthy smile? If so, you need to prevent major dental issues, like gum disease. Gum disease is a dangerous problem that can attack your teeth and gums and alter the entire condition of your oral health. It’s best to keep this disease at bay so you can maintain the strong and healthy smile you deserve. To help you do so, our dentists, Dr. Christopher Hulen and Dr. Lisa Hulen, have some tips for you. Those tips are:
-Keep up on oral hygiene: It’s very important to brush every morning and night as well as floss and rinse daily. Doing these things helps remove the harmful bacteria (plaque) from the teeth and gumline. It can even help you kill the bacteria in your mouth that have the potential of creating plaque. So, make sure to clean your smile regularly.
-Visit your dentist: It’s very important to get a dental cleaning every six months. This is because your oral hygiene routine won’t remove every little piece of plaque from your smile. Sometimes plaque turns into tartar, which is a very tough substance to remove. So, our cleaning cleans your teeth and gums as well as saves your smile from the dangerous substances that promote gum disease.
