By using basic tips and tricks, you can prevent cavities and gum disease. These tips and tricks include:
•Brush your teeth at least twice a day
•Floss each day to remove anything stuck between your teeth
•Keep up with your regular, twice-a-year visits at your dental office
Thanks to these tips and tricks, you can get in the habit of positive oral care to prevent oral issues before they arise. Preventing gum disease and cavities are important because cavities can cause you to lose your teeth. If cavities are left untreated you could result in losing a tooth. Periodontal disease is another name for gum disease and can put a huge damper on your holiday season if left untreated. Gum disease can cause your teeth to become loose, your gums to pull away from your teeth, your teeth to become sensitive, your gums to become swollen, and have bad breath.
