How can I prevent gum disease?
The best way to prevent gum disease is with a high-quality oral health routine! A good oral health routine should include brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing between your teeth once a day and visiting us for a check-up every six months. To reduce your risk of gum disease, it is also important to avoid smoking as this is often a direct cause of gum disease.
