Periodontal disease is not a topic that often comes up in conversation. Nevertheless, it is something that should probably be talked about more often, partly because it is so pervasive. Did you know that some 80 percent of American adults have some degree of periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease? Unfortunately, many of these people don’t even know they have it. Dr. Campbell and his team at their Carrollton dentist office want you to know the warning signs, so you can seek treatment if necessary.

If you’ve been told that you have gum disease, then you’re in good company. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that nearly half of American adults have some degree of gum, or periodontal, disease. That you’re among millions, however, should come as little comfort when you consider the consequences this bacterial infection can have on not only your oral health but your overall health, as well. Fortunately, Carrollton family dentist Dr. Henry A. Campbell and his staff offer gum disease therapy, so you can enjoy optimal oral health and avoid some rather serious general maladies, too.

Eating a healthy and well-balanced diet is not only important to your general health, but your oral health, as well. Dr. Henry Campbell and his team in Carrollton, TX, want to help you enjoy a healthy and happy smile for a lifetime. With this in mind, we have a few suggestions for what you should and should not be eating to maintain a healthy mouth and avoid problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.

If your teeth are prone to dental decay or carries, you are likely very familiar with the process of removing and filling damaged dental enamel. You may even receive regular fluoride treatments or dental sealants as part of your twice annual dental appointments. In some cases, the solution is a change in diet or oral hygiene, but some patients are simply genetically predisposed to experience more tooth decay. There is good news. Innovation in modern dental care is making it possible from patients who struggle with decay to rebuild damaged teeth as part of their regular preventive dentistry routine. Thanks to a natural process known as remineralization, we may be able to regrow decayed teeth in the near future.

Many patients are missing out on the full benefit of brushing and flossing because they haven’t made changes to their oral health care routine since they were children. Imagine what would happen if you utilized the same hygiene routines from your childhood to care for your whole body. If that seems ridiculous, why would caring for fully developed adult teeth the same way you cared for developing dentition make any more sense? At the Carrollton, TX dental practice of Dr. Henry A. Campbell, we’re here to help our patients develop an optimal at-home care routine for their smile. When it comes to a great oral hygiene routine, every smile is different, but we can all benefit from getting back to the basics. If you want to find out more about caring for your smile, call to schedule a hygiene appointment today.
