According to the American Dental Association (ADA), Periodontal Disease is an infection. It affects the tissues and bone that support your teeth. If you’ve been diagnosed with Periodontal Disease it can cause a sense of alarm. However, there is a lot of good news surrounding the oral issue of Periodontal Disease.
Periodontal Disease is Preventable
Good oral health care habits are vital for preventing Periodontal Disease. Be sure to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss one time per day. Eat a healthy diet that promotes good oral health. You can visit the American Dental Association’s website, mouthhealthy.org to read more about a diet that promotes good oral health. It’s also important to maintain regular dental cleanings and checkups to remove tartar, which traps bacteria along your gum line.
