Lesser-Known Tips to Help Prevent Gum Disease
Protecting our teeth and gums is critical to avoid periodontitis. Some studies have even linked this condition to serious ailments such as diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
Visiting a dentist is always important to keep teeth and gums health, but your everyday dental care at home is also critical. Here are three useful suggestions:
– Sterilise or replace your toothbrush after an illness.
– Regularly floss between your teeth and gums.
– Schedule regular cleaning appointments with a dental hygienist as this will help to address any unseen problems in advance.
