What can I do to prevent periodontal disease?

The most important thing you can do to prevent periodontal disease is to brush your teeth twice daily and floss once daily using good brushing and flossing technique. Our dental hygienists are happy to review your technique and give you a hands-on demonstration! Come to our office twice yearly for dental examinations and professional cleanings. If you are a smoker, quitting will significantly reduce your chances of developing gum disease. For more information, please call our office.
