Tips for Maintaining Your Periodontal Health

While maintaining periodontal health in Pacific Beach, California, is essential for avoiding tooth loss and keeping your smile looking and functioning at its best, failure to do so can lead to serious health complications like heart disease and diabetes. Fortunately, Dr. Joseph Boulos and Dr. Julie Boulos of All Coast Dental utilize the latest technologies to protect oral health.

Below we will discuss some steps to protect your oral health.

Brush Daily

Brushing your teeth twice daily is one of the best ways to maintain periodontal health in Pacific Beach, CA. It helps eliminate plaque, the film of bacteria that forms after you eat.

Plaque is acidic and erodes your tooth enamel, leading to bleeding gums that become swollen or red.

Gingivitis, also known as periodontal disease in its early stages, can indicate severe oral and systemic health complications, including heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis, if left untreated.

Also, if left untreated, periodontal disease could progress into more advanced stages, leading to systemic health complications like cardiovascular disease or diabetes.

Fortunately, gum disease can be prevented with proper oral care, including regular brushing, flossing, and regular dental exams with Dr. Joseph Boulos and Dr. Julie Boulos of All Coast Dental in Pacific Beach, California. 

In addition, to keeping your gums healthy, we will preserve your bright smile and help you to sidestep costly dental treatments.

Floss Daily

Flossing is a low-cost and effective habit that can make a big difference in oral health. Yet despite being the first question nearly every dentist asks when you visit, flossing may only sometimes be top of mind for many Americans.

Unfortunately, people who don't floss regularly are likelier to develop gum disease and cavities since removing food and plaque between teeth are essential. In addition, this buildup can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease if left untreated.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Our staff is trained to detect minor issues you may not notice, such as decay, tartar, or an impacted tooth. These issues are easier to treat when caught early and save you money in the long run.

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months to keep teeth and gums healthy. 

In addition to checking for tooth decay, our dentists also check for other signs of health problems that could be more serious than expected. For instance, mouth ulcers and head and neck cancer may not be visible to the naked eye, but a routine dental exam will detect them.
