Gingivitis: Why It Doesn’t Have To Happen

You might think that gingivitis is an oral health issue that’s probably going to end up affecting you at some point in your life. The truth is, there’s no need for this to happen! When you understand that avoiding this gum problem is generally as simple as keeping your smile as clean as you can, the clarity sets in. True, you’ll need to remain consistent and dedicated to your smile care. However, the requirements are so simple and convenient to accomplish that that consistency and dedication is something you can keep up with great ease!

You Just Need To Brush For 4 Minutes (Daily)

One of the reasons gingivitis just does not have to happen? It’s so easy to keep your teeth clean! You don’t need to do anything dramatic. Dental hygiene doesn’t take up a whole lot of your day. Nope. The majority of your cleaning time to protect your gum health requires you to brush for a total of four minutes on a daily basis. That’s two minutes in the morning and two minutes in the evening. So easy!

You Just Need To Floss Once Daily

Even easier than brushing? Flossing. You only need to do it once a day and it offers exceptional protection against the development of gingivitis. You can’t skip it. It removes the plaque and debris that makes their way down between teeth and beneath your gumline, which can quickly cause gum tissue to become inflamed.

You Only Need 2 Visits A Year

How easy is this? You don’t need to see us very often. Only twice a year. It will probably only take about two to three hours of your time every single year to protect yourself from gingivitis with professional care. Did you know there are 8,760 hours in a year? Yep, two to three hours is nothing!
