Brush Your Teeth Daily!
For good oral health, brush your teeth twice a day with a good fluoride toothpaste!
How Old Is Your Toothbrush?
Replace your toothbrush every 3 or 4 months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
A Healthy Diet Makes a Healthy Smile!
For healthy teeth and gums, eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. Go easy on sugary treats!
You may be suffering from gingivitis or periodontal gum disease if you have bleeding or swollen gums. Left untreated, gum disease can result in tooth and bone loss. At LaJolla Periodontics we know that it can also affect more than your mouth; it can be dangerous to your overall health. Recent studies have linked advanced periodontitis to heart disease, stroke, and pregnancy complications.
La Jolla gum disease specialist Gary Sigafoos, D.D.S., is a periodontist who uses proven techniques to gently remove infected gum tissue and the bacteria causing the infection, returning your mouth to optimal health.
