If you want your teeth to last a lifetime, your best strategy is to avoid the leading cause of adult tooth loss. We’re talking about gum disease, an insidious infection that can damage your smile long before you notice any symptoms.

Gum disease is also tied to several systemic health problems like heart disease, diabetes, and so much more.

Preventing it is a team effort! Your friends at Blythewood Village Dentistry are here to help you avoid tooth loss and other devastating consequences of periodontal infection. 

First, visit us every six months for dental checkups. Our skilled hygienists are trained to remove the harmful plaque from your teeth that brushing and flossing can’t. We will also talk to you about your individual risk for this oral health problem so you can take any necessary steps to lower it. 

Then we’ll carefully examine your mouth. With our experience and technology, we can spot gum disease in its earliest stage, which is the best time to eradicate it effectively before it has time to spread.

Finally, stay committed to daily brushing and flossing. It’s the best thing you can do in between your routine cleanings to prevent gum disease and tooth loss for a lifetime of healthy smiling!
