How can I prevent gingivitis?

The best way to prevent gingivitis is to eliminate the plaque that causes the problem. To do this, you need to strictly practice good oral hygiene. An individual can maintain the good condition of his/her teeth and gums by observing this regimen:

  • Brushing teeth properly at least twice a day or after every meal
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Flossing
  • Visiting the dentist regularly

Using anti-plaque or anti-tartar toothpaste or mouth rinse may be recommended by the dentist or dental hygienist. Lastly, regular visits to the dentist for professional teeth cleaning will remove any plaque on the teeth. You should do this every 6 months.

Now you can kiss your overbite or underbite goodbye. Have an attractive smile that’s truly remarkable from an expert’s perspective.
