Did you know that bacteria is the main culprit when it comes to periodontal disease? In order to keep your teeth and gums healthy, Centennial dentists recommend brushing and flossing at least twice a day. By taking proper care of your oral hygiene, you’re doing what it takes to keep the bacteria levels down so you’re not as susceptible to getting a periodontal disease. Gingivitis is one of the more common periodontal diseases, which can be prevented by regular brushing and flossing.

Centennial dentists also recommend making an appointment with a dentist at least twice a year in order to properly take care of your oral health. Regular teeth cleanings are an important part of removing any plaque buildup that may be on your teeth, which is also a precursor to getting a periodontal disease like gingivitis.
