The three best tips for avoiding gum disease:
- Professional Advice: Get a consultation from a dental professional to make that you are on the right track with proper diagnostic records, X-rays, professional cleanings, periodontal evaluations, and probing depths.
- Home Care: Practice impeccable hygiene at home; specifically, brush and floss your teeth twice a day.
- Nutrition: Eat a good healthy diet and stay away from bad habits like smoking, excessive alcohol and chewing tobacco.
I think if you can take care of those three things, and follow up as necessary with your dental provider, you should be able to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful.
