If you have developed gum disease, then you are probably wondering whether it can be reversed and completely overcome or whether you will be stuck with the condition forevermore.
There is no clear cut answer to this question however, as it depends on the degree of the gum disease. First and foremost it is important to realize that gum disease is not the insignificant condition that you probably think it is. In fact, if the condition is allowed to become advanced, then it can potentially become a chronic condition with long-term health implications.
Gum disease is also associated with other health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Therefore, learning all you can about how you can prevent gum disease should be a priority for everyone.
Fortunately, if you begin a treatment plan in the early stages of gum disease, then you can reverse the condition reasonably easily. Even better than realizing that you have the condition in the early stages and doing something about it is to prevent the condition from ever occurring in the first place.
You can prevent gum disease from occurring by brushing your teeth after each meal, flossing and using a mouthwash. In addition, you should visit your dentist every six months for a check-up and for them to professionally remove tartar build up that can lead to gum disease.
If you do not follow a good oral health routine as above, then you are more than likely to develop gum disease. This is because bacteria flourish when they are not removed every day and this causes plaque and tartar to grow on the teeth and cause infection of the gum tissue.
Maximizing Your Dental Health
On top of following a good oral health routine daily, there are a couple of extra things that you can do to maximize your dental health:
• Eat healthy food like fruits and vegetables to increase vitamin intake
• Drink green tea, which is filled with antioxidants
• Eat yogurt
• Incorporate whole grains and dairy items in your diet
• Massage your gums regularly to increase circulation to the gum tissue
• Avoid cigarettes and tobacco
• Reduce sugar intake
• Regularly visit the dentist
• Ask your dentist to show you how to brush your teeth effectively
By following the above advice, you can prevent gum disease from occurring. If you think that you may have developed gum disease already, then it is essential that you visit your dentist for a diagnosis and advice. If the condition is allowed to become worse, then you may end up with irreversible health problems.
