4-Ways to Improve your Oral Health in Brampton ON with a Gum Disease Treatment Dentist

Despite decades of progress in dental health and technology in the modern era, periodontal disease is still a common problem in our society. Not only does it affect the smiles of more than half the adult population, but it also has a severe effect on our health. However, it’s not just adults who are affected by gum disease. Children and teenagers are at risk as well. Help is in sight when you find a reputable gum disease treatment dentist at Brampton Dental Arts who is here to help.

The good news is that prevention and early professional treatment can reverse gum disease. Here’s more good news: It’s never too late to improve your gum health.

Signs of Gum Disease

Harmful oral pathogens cause gum disease when bacteria form a sticky plaque film that traps sugar and starches on your gums and keeps saliva from flushing them away. Unfortunately, these bacteria multiply quickly, generating acidic secretions that irritate gum tissue.

Listed below are some of the symptoms of gum disease or gingivitis.

  • Blotchiness or discoloration of the gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Odd taste in the mouth
  • Persistent bad breath

Moreover, gingivitis creates other problems with your gums, making them red, tender, inflamed, and even swollen.

How to Improve Gum Health

The following habits and practices can help you improve oral health and prevent gum disease.


Everyone should floss a minimum of once every day. According to the Canadian Dental Association, flossing helps to remove food and plaque that is beyond the reach of your toothbrush.

Regular Cleanings

Having your teeth cleaned routinely can help you and your dentist detect the early signs of gum disease. Also, professional cleanings are the only way to remove tartar from your teeth.

Brushing Twice a Day

Ideally, everyone should brush their teeth after each meal, but minimally, brushing twice a day is essential for oral hygiene and gum health.

Use Therapeutic Mouthwash

The CDA reports that therapeutic mouthwash can help prevent or reduce gingivitis, reduce plaque, and even reduce the speed at which tartar develops.
