How To Treat Gingivitis At Home
- Make sure you are brushing twice a day, if you have been missing days here and there, try to build more of a routine that works for you.
- Floss each day as those who do greatly reduce their chances of experiencing gingivitis.
- Rinse with a mouthwash at least once a day as this has been clinically proven to remove up to 99% of bacteria found in your mouth. It’s this bacteria that will erode the tooth’s enamel and cause cavities.
- Visit your dentist twice a year. A dental cleaning removes the built-up plaque that cannot be removed by brushing alone. Having a bi-annual cleaning greatly reduces your chance of having gingivitis.
