Maintenance in Chandler AZ
Maintaining healthy gums
Maintaining healthy gums after treatment for gum disease is relatively straightforward and involves steps similar to overall oral health care:
Brush two times every day for two minutes to ensure the careful removal of plaque. Use an ADA-approved fluoridated toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush.
Floss once every day to remove food and sugar particles trapped between teeth. The best time to floss is at night, just before bed. If you feel you need help with your flossing technique, our hygienist will be happy to offer some pointers.
Talk to Dr. Arooni about using an antimicrobial mouthwash. He can recommend the right type of mouthwash for your needs.
Limit the amount of sugar you eat and drink. Unfortunately, the modern American diet is full of hidden sugar and starch. Be mindful of the foods and drinks you consume and be sure to rinse your mouth with water or chew sugar-free gum after meals if you can’t brush your teeth.
