Unfortunately, there are many things in the world today that can attack and harm your smile. One of those things is gum disease. Gum disease is a serious and complex dental issue that has two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis. It’s very important to keep gingivitis at bay so you don’t suffer from periodontitis. To help you keep your smile free from this dental issue, Dr. Niloufer Hamsayeh has some tips for you.

Tip No. 1: Keep up on oral hygiene regularly. This means you need to brush twice a day and floss and rinse daily. As you do these things, use tools that have been approved by the American Dental Association. It’s also encouraged to brush every morning and every night for two minutes each time, floss with a product that is easy to use and rinse with antibacterial mouthwash. These things can wash the harmful substances from your mouth that promote gingivitis.

Tip No. 2: Visit Niloufer G. Hamsayeh, DDS twice a year for your six-month dental cleaning and exam appointments. This is an extremely important tip because our dental cleaning helps you completely remove tartar from your smile, which is the toxic substance that promotes gingivitis. Your oral hygiene routine cannot remove this substance from your chompers. So, make sure to keep up with your appointments so you can keep gingivitis at bay.
