How is Periodontal (Gum) Disease Prevented?


The best way to prevent gum disease is to simply take excellent care of your teeth. A good oral hygiene routine practiced consistently and throughout your life will be the best defense against gingivitis and more serious progressions of gum disease. It’s that simple: brush twice daily, or preferably after each meal, floss at least once, and visit our Lake Oswego, OR twice a year or as recommended by Dr. Chris Kooning for professional cleanings and dental exams.

Brush Your Teeth After Meals

Most of us have been taught to brush our teeth twice daily, but you may be surprised to learn that many people aren’t brushing properly and are leaving themselves vulnerable to gum disease. It should take at least two minutes to brush your teeth, and you should take care to brush each surface of the tooth, as well as your tongue. It’s best to brush after each meal as well, though most adults only brush once in the morning and once at night. During your next routine dental visit, you can always ask one of our friendly staff to give you a demonstration of the best tooth brushing techniques.

Floss Your Teeth Once a Day

Many adults are also not as vigilant about flossing once a day as they know they should be. Keep your floss in a place where you can see it, so you won’t be so prone to forget when it comes time to brush at the end of the night. Like brushing, you can always ask us to demonstrate proper flossing technique. While it can be a difficult habit to get into, flossing ultimately only takes a couple minutes each day and will contribute greatly to your oral health.

Regular Trips to the Dentist

You should also keep regular appointments with us at Kooning Family Dentistry for routine cleanings and dental exams, usually recommended every six months or so depending on your oral health. Even if you take excellent care of your teeth at home, it doesn’t compare to the benefits of a professional cleaning with the advantage of our special instruments that allow us to clean along and below the gum line. We can remove built-up plaque and tartar that you would not be able to reach home.

Questions About Gum Disease Prevention?

There are many stages to gum disease, and we can fully treat it if caught early enough. Call us at (503) 675-4594 to schedule your next cleaning and general checkup, and be sure to ask us about proper brushing and flossing technique.
