How to Maintain Healthy Teeth and Gums
Tooth loss and other more severe problems can result from gum disease.
It’s a good thing that you can stop gum disease or reverse its consequences. A few of these include:
Plaque and food particles lodged between your teeth and gums can be removed with proper brushing. Since bacteria can live on the tongue, remember to brush it. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles to do this.
Unlike manual brushing, electric toothbrushes can also help reduce the risk of acquiring gingivitis and plaque.
When the bristles fray every 3 to 4 months, replace your toothbrush and heads.
Using toothpaste that contains fluoride
If you use fluoride-containing toothpaste, you can protect your teeth from decay.
Fluoride can be used to heal teeth that have just mild tooth decalcification.
Patients who are older than six years old should use fluoride toothpaste.
It is also a smart option for our younger patients, who have a higher chance of developing cavities.
Flossing each day
Flossing once daily removes plaque and food debris your toothbrush cannot reach.
Rinse with mouthwash
Fluoride mouthwashes can help prevent or treat gingivitis, slow down tartar formation, or provide a combination of these benefits.
Regular dental examinations in Cabramatta
Regular dental check-ups with your Cabramatta dentist allow us to identify early signs of gum disease.
This allows for the treatment of symptoms before they worsen.
Stubborn tartar can only be eliminated by a professional scale and clean at your dentist’s clinic in Cabramatta. Additionally, it can aid in removing plaque that brushing and flossing were unable to eliminate.
The onset of gum disease is directly correlated with smoking. Smoking lowers immunity, which makes gum infections more challenging to treat.
Additionally, if gums have been injured or infected, smoking makes it difficult for them to recover.
Your Cabramatta dentist will also offer diet and lifestyle suggestions for healthy gums and explain how to recognise the signs of gum disease in addition to these methods for maintaining healthy gums.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease comes in various forms, and they all affect the tissues surrounding the teeth.
As the illness progresses, the jaw’s supporting bone is destroyed, causing the teeth to become looser. The teeth may eventually fall out if neglected.
What is gingivitis?
Red and swollen gums characterise gingivitis. When the gums are brushed, they frequently bleed.
Is gum disease something I'll probably get?
Anyone with poor oral hygiene, such as those who don’t consistently clean and floss their teeth, are susceptible. Additionally, some persons are genetically predisposed to periodontitis more than others. Gum disease is more likely to affect you if one of your biological parents.
Can teeth be saved from periodontitis?
If you catch periodontal disease early and take care of your teeth with frequent cleanings and exams, you can save some of your teeth. Allowing tooth loss to occur should be anticipated if the problem is unchecked.
