Prevent periodontal (gum) disease!
Pasadena, Deer Park residents can help prevent periodontal (gum) disease by taking good care of their teeth every day and having regular dental checkups with Dr. Nugent.
Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day. If you can do three times a day it is even better!! Brushing removes the blanket of bacteria from the teeth. Use a soft- bristled toothbrush that is in good condition. Even better, use a high quality electric toothbrush. Toothpastes and mouth rinses containing fluoride fortify the teeth and help prevent decay. Clean between your teeth every day.
Cleaning between your teeth with floss removes bacteria and food particles from between the teeth, where a toothbrush can’t reach. Early periodontal (gum) disease can usually be reversed by daily brushing and flossing improvements in oral hygiene.
Eat a balanced diet. Choose as assortment of foods from the basic food groups. Increase fruit and vegetables and decrease sugar consumption.
