Hearing that you have periodontal disease or gum disease in Palm Harbor can be very upsetting. Here at Prestige Dentistry, we are committed to educating and assisting patients in preventing gum disease in Palm Harbor. If you discover that you already have gum disease, don’t despair. We can help you.

First, we’ll work to identify if you have the disease by examining your symptoms. Some warning signs of gum disease are bleeding gums, swollen gums, receding gums, bad breath that won’t go away, loose teeth, or sensitive teeth. If we notice that you are presenting symptoms, then we will move forward with a treatment plan. Here are some additional steps to help you heal and to prevent gum disease in the future.

  • Brush at least two times a day – morning and night
  • Brush with fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Visit dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings
  • Use a fluoride rinse before brushing
  • Avoid between-meal snacking
  • Avoid tobacco products
