Helpful Information for YOU!
Prevention and treatment Bone loss Bone loss You can prevent gum inflammation and periodontitis through good oral hygiene. Periodontal disease can be hard to detect, so be observant of visible signs such as redness, swelling and bleeding gums. If you suspect gum inflammation, contact your dental professional. The professional treatment includes deep cleaning and removal of plaque and tartar. You will also get oral hygiene advice, recommendations of suitable cleaning devices and instructions about their use. The cooperation between you and your caregiver is of utmost importance for a successful result, even after treatment is completed. Regular checkups in combination with your own home care are crucial to prevent the problems from coming back
Toothbrushing Brush the inside, outside and biting surfaces of the teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, every morning and every night. Angle the brush so that the filaments reach the gum line. Brush with light pressure using small movements.
Brush between your teeth
If you have gum inflammation or periodontitis it is even more important to clean between your teeth, where the toothbrush does not reach. An interdental brush is efficient and easy to use. Use every day, even if the gums are sore and bleed.
Choose the right size brush
It is important to use the right size. Your dental professional can help to select the correct brush size/sizes for you. A brush of the right size should fill the interdental space and present some resistance when inserted, but should not be forced into the space. Move the brush back and forth a few times in each interdental space. Look in the mirror for easier use.
