Why Preventing Periodontal Disease Is So Important

gum disease prevention

Maintaining healthy gums is important for a number of reasons. To start, you need healthy gums to keep your teeth firmly in place and maintain an attractive smile. But the health of your gums also affects the health of your entire body.

Numerous research studies show that preventing or effectively treating periodontal disease can help you minimize your risk for other inflammation-associated health conditions, including cardiovascular disease (e.g. high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke), Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.

Ways to Effectively Prevent Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease does not just happen all at once. Gum disease starts off as gingivitis, an inflammation of the gum tissues that can be treated and effectively cured to prevent progression to periodontal disease. At this early stage, treatment may be as easy as maintaining good daily oral hygiene—brushing your teeth for two minutes two times a day, flossing and seeing your local Rio Rancho dentist for semi-annual checkups. Your dentist may provide additional care tips, products and in-office, periodontal care to remove plaque buildup that can inflame gingival tissues.
