Stop the Damage of Gum Disease with Your Dentist in Medford

May 31, 2017

Filed under: Periodontal Dentistry — Tags: — Dr. Anthony Giamberardino @ 9:42 pm

Your dentist in Medford discusses the signs of gum disease.Do your gums bleed when you brush your teeth? You might be thinking that it is from brushing too hard, but it is an indication you might have gum disease (periodontal disease). Too often, people tend to believe that the bleeding is normal; however, any bleeding when you brush is a sign that your gums are not healthy. It is usually a symptom of an infection in the gum tissue. When treated early, it is easily treatable and reversible without causing long-term damage. However, if you ignore the bleeding, the infection will continue, potentially leading to the loss of your teeth. As your dentist in Medford, Dr. Anthony Giamberardino offers periodontal therapy to restore your dental health.

Give Your Gums the Star Treatment

January 8, 2014

shutterstock_144914185A lot of people may not know this, but besides your dentist, you alone are the main fighter in making sure you are in excellent oral health. Your dentist can only do so much, but it is up to you to make sure you keep up the excellent work. The important thing is to remember healthy gums is a key component in having a healthy smile. Though many may not find important in flossing or mouthwash, they are a couple of key factors in a long-lasting, exceptional smile.

At Giamberardino Dental Care, we emphasize gum health. Over 80% of the population has some form of gum disease. Although gum disease is completely reversible of caught early on, if left untreated, it can lead to severe complications like heart disease, tooth loss, and bone disease.

One of the things you can do to make sure you have healthy gums is to floss at least twice a day. Floss eliminates the food trapped between your teeth, preventing bacteria from making your gums their new home. Studies have shown that regular flossing is one way to lower your risk of heart disease.

Using mouth wash is also an excellent way to have beautiful gums. Though brushing your teeth definitely eliminates bacteria, tooth brushes can only go so far. Using mouthwash reaches all the nooks and crannies you can miss. Definitely choose an antibacterial mouthwash, and preferably one with fluoride. This way, it will kill any remaining bacteria, as well as strengthen your teeth.

These simple tools can definitely help you with your journey of perfect oral health. If you feel as though your gums are in need of some assistance and want Dr. Giamberardino to help, call us and make an appointment, and we’d be more than happy to help!
