When it comes to the battle against gum disease, many of us don’t realize that it’s a winnable fight. While it’s true that gum disease can be a serious problem, there are also ways to reverse it and get your oral health back on track. 

That’s right, you don’t have to just accept it as an inevitable part of life! 

Let’s start with the basics. 

Gum disease is caused by plaque buildup around your teeth and gums. When the plaque isn’t removed, it can lead to inflammation and infection, which can cause gum recession and other issues.

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Fortunately, the good news is that gum disease can be reversed and also prevented from coming back with proper dental care like brushing, flossing, proper diet, and you guessed it—teeth cleanings! 

Feeling inflamed? Take action soon.

Bi-annual visits with your dentist for exams and x-rays are important to understand your overall dental health. They may suggest a deep cleaning if you’re experiencing signs of gum disease. 

Fight gum disease with food.

If you’re serious about reversing gum disease, a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, limiting sugary and starchy foods, and avoiding tobacco products can all help mitigate and reduce gum disease.
