Your Tools Against Dental Disease

Toothpaste

Are there bacteria in your mouth undermining your dental health?  Is your tooth enamel being bombarded by the buildup of plaque? Are your gums being subjected to gingivitis? The likely answer is yes, but you can fight back with proper dental care.

As children, we were told that brushing our teeth was the way to avoid problems like cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. As it turns out, we were taught the truth. While brushing a couple of times a day won’t keep us from ever having to go see a dentist in Bradenton, it is the first step in good dental care. Using fluoride toothpaste and the proper toothbrush at least twice a day will help your teeth and your gums avoid the risk of many damaging dental conditions.

For instance, consistent and diligent brushing with a good toothpaste will help to protect the enamel on your teeth. The buildup of plaque occurs when bits of food remain on your teeth and creates an environment for bacteria that can attack your gums, which can lead to gingivitis or even periodontitis, which is very bad news indeed. Periodontitis can damage your gums, causing them to recede from your teeth, ultimately endangering both your teeth and gums. This condition can result in the loss of your teeth since your gums can no longer hold them properly in place. Another common side effect of periodontitis is extremely bad breath.

Thankfully, this need not happen to you if you follow the proper dental care regimen recommended by your family dentistry expert in Bradenton. Be sure to brush twice every day with a fluoride toothpaste, which is effective in combating plaque buildup and strengthening the enamel on your teeth.

And make sure you visit an affordable dentist at Manatee Dental At College Plaza. An expert in family dentistry will examine areas in your mouth that you simply cannot see, and can alert you very early in the process if you are developing dental problems. Regular visits to your dentist, along with diligent brushing using a fluoride toothpaste, can keep you smiling for a long time to come.
