How to Prevent Gum Disease

Gum Disease PreventionMore than 47% of adults in America suffer from gum disease. If this is a statistic that you do not want to become a part of, it is important to properly manage your oral hygiene on a regular basis. Gum disease is one of those conditions that can quietly creep up on you without you ever realizing that it is there. Next thing you know, you have gum disease. The reason it is so hard to see in advance is because you do not feel pain from gum disease until it has progressed pretty far.. At Perio Protect®, we encourage you to take the necessary steps now to prevent gum disease from occurring in the future.

Common Ways to Prevent Gum Disease

Good oral hygiene is the number one way to prevent gum disease. This includes the following:

Brushing - Get yourself in a habit of brushing your teeth at least twice a day, preferably after every meal.
Flossing - Healthy gums are the key to avoiding gum disease, and daily flossing helps.
Regular Dental Appointments - Having regular dental appointments every six months is incredibly important. Not only is it good to get your teeth cleaned at least twice a year, but this also gives your dentist a chance to analyze your oral hygiene, including your gums.

The Perio Tray®

Fighting gum disease is exactly what the Perio Tray was made for! At Perio Protect, we have developed a non-invasive treatment option that helps fight against gum disease. If your dentist has found early signs of gum disease or has identified risk factors indicating preventative measures, the Perio Tray is a comfortable way to stop tissue destruction before it progresses. Preventing gum disease from getting worse is extremely important. Using the Perio Tray once a day, for as little as 10-15 minutes, will allow medicine to reach deep into the pockets between the teeth and gums, preventing the gum disease from progressing any further. Good oral hygiene between dental visits is crucial and the Perio Tray is here to help you during this time.

Preventing gum disease is not an easy task. At Perio Protect, we agree with your dentist that creating habits of regular homecare and visiting your dentist are very important. If your dentist identifies signs of the disease or notes that the gum disease is progressing, create a gum disease treatment plan immediately. By using the Perio Tray from Perio Protect in combination with regular dental care, you’ll be able to help prevent the disease from progressing further.
