Protecting Your Smile From Gum Disease

February 14, 2022

Did you know that your periodontal health and overall health are closely linked? Today, mounting evidence indicates periodontal disease contributes to conditions affecting your systemic wellness. Keeping this in mind, the prevention and treatment of gum disease not only protects the health of your smile but also supports your overall wellbeing. At the office of Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas, we provide our patients with the care required to maintain excellent periodontal health and support whole-body wellness.

A Far Too Common Problem

The statistics on the incidence of gum disease are surprisingly high. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every two adults over 30 in the United States has periodontitis, an advanced form of periodontal disease. However, there is good news to report. With proper oral hygiene, professional dental cleanings, and care, gum disease is preventable.

February is “Gum Disease Awareness Month.”

February is “Gum Disease Awareness Month” and an excellent time to focus on periodontal health and the steps you can take to keep your smile in tip-top shape. Remember, a healthy smile is not something you can take for granted. Dr. Racanelli and his team firmly believe the best way to avert gum disease and provide your teeth with the ongoing strong support they require is with the following measures:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene at home
  • Eat a nutritious diet
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid harmful oral habits
  • Get routine dental checkups, professional dental cleanings 
  • Be well-informed and mindful of the signs and symptoms of periodontal disease 
  • Get prompt treatment to address gum disease, stop its progression, and maintain optimal periodontal health

Be Informed and Aware

Since the progression of periodontal disease is often painless, many people are not even aware of an ongoing disease process. For this very reason, it’s essential to stay on top of your oral health. By establishing healthy practices and partnering with our office for care, you can reduce your risk of gum disease and enjoy the benefits of good oral health.
