How can you prevent periodontal disease?

There are several ways you can prevent periodontal disease. First, practice good oral hygiene habits at home. Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste with fluoride. This will help prevent plaque buildup. When plaque builds up, it can cause gum disease and tooth decay.

In addition, visit your dentist regularly for teeth cleaning. Your dentist will clean your teeth and check for signs of cavities or gum disease. During your appointment, your dentist may recommend additional treatments, such as fluoride or sealants.
