Is good oral hygiene best known way to treat gum disease?

Is good oral hygiene best known way to treat gum disease?

Yes, for gingivitis!: The greatest prevalence of gum disease is gingivitis. This is an inflammation of the upper visible surfaces of the gums. It is completely reversible by daily flossing and a vibratory toothbrushing technique used at the gum-tooth interface. If you skip a single day of flossing and brushing, a new inflammatory response will occur to the new "growth" of plaque and gingivitis reoccurs.

What is the best thing I can do if I think I have gum disease? I am a 25 year old woman who has had a recent onset of gum disease symptoms. For the past 2 weeks my gums have been bleeding every time I brush, horrible taste in my mouth, and after closer in

If: If you think you have gum disease the best thing you can do is see a dentist for an exam and cleaning. If you have not had your teeth cleaned in a while there is nothing over the counter or magic rinse that will solve the problem. You lack of dental insurance makes it even more important to see a dentist. The last thing you need is thousands of dollars of treatment because you let a small problem fester and become a large one. Most people spend some of their discretionary dollars on things they value (cigarettes, iphone, ipad etc, drinks with friends, concert tickets, cable tv etc.) don't let your lack of insurance lead you to neglecting your teeth. If you value them spend some money on them and protect them. Prevention is a great investment. The video in the link below shoes how gum disease progresses. long island periodontist best of luck.

Treat the cause: Any mouthwash with ok as long as the cause of disease is treated. Use biotene (nonalcohol mouthwash)if your mouth is dry. Dry mucosa will cause bleeding as tissue is rubbing and thus the blood smell gives rise to halitosis.

Xylitol: Xylitol kills bacteria and bushing with it can help with dental health. I have see patients who brush and floss regularly but still have some gum disease make a marked improvement by using a xylitol containing toothpaste. You may have to get it at a health food store. Less than 1 tube should make a difference.
