Gum disease prevention

edited April 4 in Oral Care

For healthy dental care General guidelines suggest brushing twice a day: after breakfast and before going to bed, but ideally the mouth would be cleaned after every meal. Teeth cleningis the removal of dental plaque from teeth to prevent cavities, gingivitis, gum disease, and tooth decay. Severe gum disease causes at least one-third of adult tooth loss.


  • Thank you for these oral health recommendations. That is a scary statistic about gum disease causing at least one-third of adult tooth loss!
