Home Care for Periodontal Disease


Posted on 9/5/2022 by Cassity & Legacy Implants and Periodontics
Home Care for Periodontal DiseasePeriodontal disease is an oral health condition that can cause tooth loss, gum infection, and even bone damage. If you are detected with periodontal disease, your dentist may recommend several home care treatments to help you manage the condition. This article will discuss the most effective home remedies for periodontal disease. We will also provide tips on improving your oral hygiene routine and reducing your risk of developing the condition.

Brushing and Flossing Regularly


Brushing and flossing are vital for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Ensure to brush twice a day and floss at least once daily. If you have periodontitis, you must brush more frequently or use special toothbrushes or toothpaste. The best toothpaste will contain fluoride, which can help reduce plaque and prevent tooth decay. Flossing will remove plaque and bacteria from between your teeth and gums.

Using a Salt Water Rinse


Salt water can help to remove bacteria and debris from your teeth and gums. It can also help to manage inflammation. To use a salt water rinse, mix a teaspoon of salt in eight ounces of warm water. Gargle the mixture around your mouth for 30 seconds before spitting it out.

Eating a Balanced Diet


The best foods for treating periodontal disease reduce inflammation and promote oral health. These include food rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E. Foods high in omega-three fatty acids, such as fish, can also help reduce inflammation. It is also important to avoid sugary and acidic foods, as these can contribute to the development of periodontal disease.

Hydrogen Peroxide


Hydrogen peroxide is an antibacterial element that can help fight gum disease. Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water, and use it to rinse your mouth. Do the entire process once or twice a day for best results.

We treat periodontal disease with deep cleanings and other professional treatments. Contact our dental clinic and schedule an appointment.
