Gum Awareness Month

Gum awareness month begins in September and Dr. Nash and Dr. Sewell here at Nash Dental Care in Temecula, CA both provide healthy gum cleanings to all of our patients. Gum disease affects multiple Americans in the United States and with the right tools can be easily preventable. Gingivitis is the beginning stages of gum disease and slowly progresses into periodontal disease which ultimately is an inflammation of the gums and tooth. When you come in for your 6-month appointment here at Nash Dental Care out dentists and staff will go through a thorough exam and cleanings to help prevent this disease. But, there are also things that you can do yourself to prevent gum disease including:

  • Brush thoroughly with a soft-bristled toothbrush both in the morning and at night
  • Replace your toothbrush every three months
  • Floss every day- mainly at night
  • Schedule routine dental checkups with our dentists here at Nash Dental Care
  • Do not smoke or use tobacco products

We want to ensure all of our patients are educated on oral health so call our office today if you would like more information at 951- 699-0700
