Brush Your Teeth to Prevent Gum Disease

Periodontal disease affects about 80% of U.S. adults and contributes to more tooth loss than cavities. A daily home care regimen is necessary to try and prevent periodontal disease in Leland, NC. Thoroughly brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing every night will help keep bacteria under control. Flossing helps prevent cavities in between the teeth and, when done correctly, cleans under the gum line and helps fight gum disease.

Tobacco Effect on Teeth

Why Tobacco Is Bad for Your Teeth?

Many people understand the correlation between tobacco use and lung disease, heart disease, and cancer, but recent studies show a link between tobacco use and periodontal disease. We have found an increase of hard, tartar build-up, deeper gum pockets, and more bone loss in patients who use tobacco products. We encourage all of our patients to quit smoking to improve their overall health and quality of life!
