Preventing Gum Disease in Adults
According to recent findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half of Americans aged 30 or older have an advanced form of gum disease known as periodontitis. This chronic condition can lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
Routine visits to the dentist can help you prevent and manage gum disease in any stage as well as tooth decay. Dr. Furgurson and Dr. White offer comprehensive periodontal care and screens patients for gum disease on every visit.
How do I properly care for my teeth in between visits?
Visiting your dentist every six months is only part of an effective preventive dental care routine. Caring for you teeth at home every day is very important to avoiding many dental issues and diseases. Dr. Furgurson recommends brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Limit the amount of sugar you consume and consume a healthy overall diet. These steps in addition to the preventive care we offer guarantees that your teeth will remain healthy.
