Gingivitis Prevention

Healthy Teeth Takes Work

A lot of us want to have healthy teeth and gums, but only very few are doing what it takes to achieve it. Healthy teeth can’t be achieved overnight. Just because you brushed and flossed today doesn’t mean you won’t get gingivitis. It must be a part of your everyday routine, a part of your lifestyle. To maintain your oral health, you must have dedication. Aside from practicing proper dental hygiene, you must also regularly see your Family Dentist Loveland. Seeing your dentist regularly will help detect gingivitis before it worsens.

Brushing Your Teeth

There are three easy yet highly effective ways to prevent the occurrence of gingivitis. First, you need to know how to brush your teeth. Brushing is a given but if it’s done wrong, you won’t be able to completely remove food particles in your teeth. Ideally, it is recommended that you brush your teeth twice a day using a soft-bristled brush. When you brush, include your gums, and focus on the gum line to get rid of plaque.

Floss In Between Teeth

Brushing and flossing always go hand in hand. It doesn’t matter if you floss before you brush or after, the important thing is that you floss your teeth. There are food particles that may get stuck between your teeth and often your toothbrush won’t be able to loosen them. Make sure that you floss the right way to protect your gums.
