How to Prevent Gum Disease from Happening in the First Place

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Gum disease is a severe problem and can lead to more severe health issues if not treated properly. Good oral hygiene is key to preventing gum disease from happening in the first place. Read on and learn how to protect your oral health! What Is Gum Disease and Its Types? Gum disease occurs when plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, builds upon the teeth. This plaque can harden into tartar, a hard substance to remove. Over time, the tartar and plaque can irritate the gums, causing them to become inflamed. This inflammation is known as gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease. Periodontitis can damage the bone and connective tissue that support your teeth, ultimately causing tooth loss. Gum disease is quite preventable through good oral hygiene. Risk Factors of Gum Disease Different factors can enhance your risk of developing gum disease. One of the main reasons is smoking or using other forms of tobacco can increase your risk of gum disease. Another reason is diabetes. People with any type of diabetes are more likely to develop gum disease because they are more susceptible to infection. Other factors contributing to gum disease include hormonal changes in women, genetics, certain medications, crooked teeth, fillings or dental appliances that do not fit properly, and a dry mouth. How to Prevent Gum Disease? The proven way to prevent gum disease is by practicing good oral hygiene. It means brushing your teeth a minimum of two times a day, flossing every day, using an antibacterial mouthwash, and visiting the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and check-ups. If you have any risk factors for gum disease, it is essential to be extra vigilant about your oral hygiene. One can also take extra care of their diet. It is crucial to add foods rich in Vitamin C, D, and calcium.  By following these tips, you can help prevent gum disease from happening in the first place. However, if you already have gum disease, it is essential to see our dentist as soon as possible for treatment....

This Doctor is a true healer!


Dr. Bembey is truly a healer. Not one of those Doctors who is in it for the money. You can tell that she loves her job. She actually made it enjoyable, and I don’t normally think of gum surgery as something to enjoy. She is very knowledgeable, and her skills are awesome! She communicates well and tells you small details that really help a lot. And she is there for you if you need her. Most importantly, she saved me from loosing my teeth! This Doctor is a GEM!!! I highly recommend her.
