Periodontal Maintenance Q&A

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition that often goes unnoticed until it’s too late. It’s caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar on teeth and gums, leading to inflammation and infection. If left untreated, it can lead to the loss of your teeth and even spread to other parts of the body. 

Thankfully, it’s preventable with proper oral hygiene and regular visits to Austin Advanced Dentistry. Don’t forget to brush and floss regularly, and schedule your 6-month check-ups. Your oral health will appreciate it.

How does periodontal maintenance protect my gums?

Several factors can impact your gum health. Some major contributors include poor oral hygiene, smoking, genetics, hormonal changes, certain medications, and a less-than-ideal diet. The good news is that you have control over most of these factors. 

By brushing and flossing regularly, quitting smoking, and eating a balanced diet, you can give your gums the care they deserve. Moreover, when you schedule an appointment with the dental experts, they can remove stubborn plaque and tartar that builds up over time.

How does oral hygiene contribute to periodontal maintenance?

Adults tend to lose more teeth to gum disease rather than cavities. Up to 75% of adults experience some form of gum disease in their lifetime. This creates a need for exceptional gum and tooth care that Austin Advanced Dentistry provides. 

With proper oral hygiene, you can safely mitigate the damage of stubborn plaque and tartar. While you can reduce the buildup of these bacteria, only teeth cleaning at least once every six months can completely protect your health.

Do I require periodontal maintenance?

Gum disease often hides in plain sight and causes trouble without you even realizing it. There are a few signs to keep an eye out for, such as:

  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Changes in the way your teeth fit together when you bite

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s time to have a heart-to-heart with your dentist. Austin Advanced Dentistry can provide a custom treatment plan to improve the health of your gums and prevent it from getting worse. You should take the warning signs of gum disease seriously and take control of your gum health today.
