How Common Is Gum Disease?
7 out of 10 Canadians are afflicted with gum disease at some point, according to the Canadian Dental Association. You and your Lakewood Dental Centre team of dental professionals are partners in your fight against gum disease. Diligent toothbrushing and flossing and regular teeth cleanings and exams can keep gum disease at bay. If your gum disease has progressed, the next step is nonsurgical gum disease treatment.
How Often Should I Replace My Toothbrush?
The Canadian Dental Association advises changing your toothbrush every three months. An easy way to remember this is when the season changes, your toothbrush should change too. For the health of your gums and enamel, choose a toothbrush with soft bristles that can easily reach the back of your mouth.
What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a tooth replacement option that helps prevent bone loss. An implant has two parts: a titanium post that bonds to the bone beneath your gums for strong hold, and a replacement tooth that sits above your gumline, so you can chew with ease and show off a full smile.
