Picking a Dental Floss

It's amazing how much variety you can find in dental floss. With conventional floss, you just tear off a piece at least 18 inches and wind it around your index fingers. If you find traditional thread-like floss is uncomfortable for your gums, try dental ribbon, its smoother counterpart. Dental flossers are often regarded as being easier to manage than conventional floss. There's no need to wrap any excess thread around your fingers, which some find uncomfortable.

If you have a fixed bridge in your mouth, nifty little floss threaders allow you to thread the floss between your teeth, under the bridge work. If you have questions about dental floss, just call LaJolla Periodontics at (855) 563-7049 and we’ll be happy to make a recommendation.

Oral Health for Seniors

At LaJolla Periodontics we believe that the good habits of effective daily brushing and a healthy diet will help the aging person adapt to changing conditions. Reduced salivary flow and addition of medications can affect oral health dramatically.

Teeth may darken because of long-term exposure to plaque and changes in the dentin within the tooth. The gums may recede and uncover the roots, making them more prone to decay. Poorly-fitting or poorly-cleaned dentures, illness, and some medications increase the severity of the problem. For more information regarding dental problems of seniors, please call our office at (855) 563-7049.

Regular Dental Cleaning Can Ward Off Gum Disease

Gum disease is caused by an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and it is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. Early gum disease, or gingivitis, can be treated and reversed if diagnosed early. Unfortunately, not receiving treatment will lead to a more serious and advanced state of gum disease.

Regular cleanings and check-ups and daily brushing and flossing are key weapons in the fight against these conditions so call LaJolla Periodontics today at (855) 563-7049 to schedule a checkup soon.
