The risk of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can be reduced by eating a balanced diet and by maintaining a healthy immune system. A healthy body aids in resisting oral and dental infections.
Try to keep the consumption of sugar low, especially the kinds that stick to your teeth. Children sleeping with a baby bottle in their mouth increase the risk of tooth decay. Sensible eating habits and a balanced diet, regular and efficient tooth brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing, coupled with regular medical and dental checkups will reduce dental disease. Our dentists can also assist you in your effort to prevent dental decay.
