What can I do to prevent periodontal (gum) disease?

Practicing good oral hygiene habits is the best way to prevent periodontal disease. Brush your teeth twice daily using good technique, and floss every day in the evening. If you need help with proper brushing and flossing technique, one of our excellent dental hygienists will be happy to provide a hands-on demonstration. Visit our office every six months for a dental examination and a professional cleaning.
