For the most part it does not take a lot in order to prevent gum disease. Here are a few things you can do that will help prevent gum disease as well as maintain good oral health care.
* Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day every day with fluoride toothpaste.
* Floss at least once a day.
* Visit your dentist regularly (normally at least twice a year) for a checkup and cleaning.
* Eat a well-balanced diet.
* If you smoke, quit smoking. Smoking increases your risk for gum disease.
