Preventing Gum Disease

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line and gently clean where the gums meet your teeth.

  • Clean between your teeth at least once a day with floss to remove bacteria, plaque and food particles where your toothbrush can’t reach.

  • Eat a balanced diet.

  • Don’t smoke.

  • Visit your dentist regularly for a preventive checkup and professional cleaning.
