As you age, many oral health problems are common. Gum disease, shifting teeth and tooth decay are problems that millions of Americans deal with, but also things that can often be avoided with just a little bit of preventative care. In National Gum Care Month this September, we want you to understand the importance of caring for your gums before they develop problems.
How to Prevent Disease
As serious as periodontal disease can be, the preventative measures are as simple. In just a few easy steps each day and a conscious decision to care for your mouth, you can save yourself the pain and discomfort of gum disease and the money that comes from treatment when the condition is advanced.
Caring for your gums is much the same as caring for your teeth regularly. The following habits can greatly reduce your chances of developing periodontal disease.
