Preventative dentistry, or preventative dental care, is an effective way of keeping the smile healthy and proactively caring for the teeth and gums to reduce the risk of complications. Some of the more common dental problems that are seen include gum disease and tooth decay, two issues that can significantly and permanently affect the smile.

What is gum disease, and how can it affect my smile?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a condition in which the gums and bones around your teeth become infected. If left untreated, this gum disease can lead to tooth loss.

What are the stages of gum disease?

There are two main varieties of gum disease including gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the earliest stage of infection and can often be reversed with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Periodontitis is the more advanced stage of disease and may require treatment by a dentist or other healthcare professional.

Can you cure gum disease?

Gum disease is a progressive condition, meaning it will continue to get worse over time. However, with early diagnosis and treatment, you can control the progression of gum disease and prevent it from getting worse. However, this condition currently cannot be cured, only controlled with the assistance of a dental professional at Golden Dental Solutions, including our dentists Drs. Nancy Gill, Dallas Kenson, and Evelyn Qi.

How can I prevent gum disease and keep my smile healthy?

The most effective way to prevent gum disease is to practice good oral hygiene, including brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. If you follow these steps, you will significantly reduce your risk of developing not only periodontal disease, but cavities as well.
