Gum Disease Care

Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth.

Periodontal disease can affect one tooth or many teeth. It begins when the bacteria in plaque (the sticky, colorless film that constantly forms on your teeth) causes the gums to become inflamed.

If you think you may have gum disease or have been told that you have periodontal disease, it’s important to take proper care of your oral health in order to prevent your condition from worsening.

Here are a few tips:

  • Brush your teeth with a toothpaste designed to fight gum disease.
  • Make sure to floss every day, as plaque can build up quickly in the crevices between teeth.
  • Use mouthwash after you brush to freshen your breath and kill bacteria.

If you think you may be suffering from gingivitis or a more advanced form of periodontal disease, it’s important to seek treatment immediately because treatment becomes more complicated as your condition worsens.

If you are in Mullins, Florence, Myrtle Beach, or any of the surrounding areas, we encourage you to contact our office today to schedule your periodontal disease evaluation.
