Gingivitis Prevention and Treatment Include Improved Oral Hygiene Habits

Posted .

The health of your gums can have a significant impact on your overall quality of life. Chronic gum disease complications can be very inconvenient and severe gum disease treatment can often be costly. With early detection at Ariel Dental, the earliest form of gum disease, which is known as gingivitis, can often be remediated and further prevented.

Most of the time gingivitis can be counteracted with a thorough dental cleaning performed at our office. This will remove all traces of bacterial-rich calculus. Dr. Bijan Ahmadzadeh can then help you make the necessary improvements to your oral hygiene routine. In many cases, this can effectively reverse the effects of gingivitis and help you prevent future occurrences.

Focusing on brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and abrasive toothpaste will help remove plaque and residual food matter from the faces and contours of your teeth. You should then floss each evening after you are done eating for the day.

Attending a dental checkup and cleaning with Dr. Bijan Ahmadzadeh will remove all traces of tartar from your mouth and monitor the health of your gums.

If you are concerned that you might be developing gingivitis in Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania, you should call 570-689-2449 to schedule an appointment at Ariel Dental.
