How your Dental Visits can Help Prevent Periodontal Disease

older woman reading about periodontal disease Periodontal disease is nothing to joke about. If this disease gets ignored, it could result in tooth and/or bone loss, forcing you to suffer with a wide variety of complications as you get older. Rather than taking that risk, you can keep your regular dental visits in order to prevent it from occurring in the first place. Believe it or not, just those two appointments per year could have a large bearing on whether or not you become a victim of this debilitating oral health disease.

Brushing and Flossing

Brushing and flossing your teeth is a crucial component of your oral health routine, but it is not enough. You need to keep your regular dental appointments in order to allow the dentist to thoroughly examine your mouth and remove all plaque and bacteria both on your teeth and in between them. This is the only way to completely remove all risk of gum disease from your mouth. Once you reach this level of cleanliness, you need to keep up your oral hygiene at home in order to prevent the bacteria from growing back.

Neglecting your Dental Visits

Choosing to ignore your need for regular dental visits can put you at great risk for getting periodontal disease. Even if you brush and floss your teeth after every meal and snack, there is no way for you to get the hardened plaque that accumulates on your teeth from normal daily activities. Everyone has plaque on their teeth and choosing to ignore it or pretend that it is not there will put you at risk for periodontal disease.
