You know how when you hear certain words, your brain kind of shuts down and gets numb. Well unfortunately, gingivitis may be one of those words. Wait, don’t stop reading.

We want you to take full control of your gums and pearly whites to ensure your teeth last a lifetime. Don’t you?

People often take their teeth for granted. The truth, if we don’t take good care of them, they will not last a lifetime. At The Toothery, we want what is best for you and the health of your mouth. You should too!

Gingivitis is a bacterial infection that causes inflammation of the gums. It is caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar. Left untreated it can lead to more serious gum disease that can cause tooth loss down the road. Fortunately, prevention and treatment can help resolve these issues.

Getting regular cleanings and exams is one critical line of defense. Donna, one of our hygienists, suggests flossing before you go to bed to be most effective in keeping bacteria and plaque to a minimum. In addition to brushing after each meal whenever possible, when you wake up in the morning and before bed too. These are critical lines of defense.

Gingivitis doesn’t have to numb your brain or harm your teeth! We can help your smile last a lifetime! Give us a call.
