Methods To Avoid Gingivitis, Gum Disease, and Severe Periodontal Disease in Winston-Salem
What causes gingivitis?
These advanced dental diseases do not develop immediately. Signs of gingivitis can be detected in the mouth for years before leaving to a complex and serious periodontal disease. In order to avoid the many stages of gingivitis, the best advice we can give you is to brush and floss regularly and to attend an oral examination once or twice per year where a tooth cleaning takes place.
There was one time a patient called us, and having not seen a dentist for several years was complaining of a toothache. He was looking for a home remedy for toothache.
While we can suggest many types of home dental care that you can use to alleviate pain in the mouth, we recommended to this patient that they come into our office, as we had not seen them in several years.
Rather than give him home remedies for a toothache, this gentlemen came into the office and we were able to diagnose advanced gum disease. His toothache remedy ended up being a rather simple tooth cleaning in which we dug deep into the gums and removed all of the existing bacteria and tartar.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you or someone in your family is considering wisdom teeth removal we highly suggest doing so, for most people it is a great preventive treatment. Currently, our bodies have evolved in a way that our mouths have less and less space. Nowadays, four additional molars in our mouth are not necessary.
As our teeth have intricate works installed to make and form a perfect smile, wisdom teeth may only provide issues and problems in the long run.
The wisdom teeth removal process is fairly easy and to be done in one dental visit. We suggest it is most appropriate for young adults, who have just only begun to have the wisdom teeth grow in.
