The Importance of Oral Hygiene
Brushing and flossing are the first defense against cavities but are also highly effective against gum disease. Whether you have milder Gingivitis symptoms or more obvious gum soreness, receding gums, a persistent bad taste in your mouth, or redness and sensitivity, a good oral care regimen and gum disease treatment are important. Gum disease doesn’t just happen to the elderly. Even your kids are at risk. The best approach is a combination of good oral hygiene and twice yearly visits to your dentist. If you have signs of gum disease, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits to monitor treatment progress.
