In the beginning, gum disease may not be very detectable to you. It is a problem that grows over time and may start to cause recession of your gumline and dentin exposure before you start to notice it.
As one doctor I read put it, “Many people are headed for dental surgery and do not even know it!”. Unfortunately, this doctor is correct.
It should be no surprise that the professional treatment of periodontal disease is a billion dollar industry in the United States. While I’m sure it is a billion dollar industry, it may be likely that it is a tens of billions of dollars industry.
Do you remember the old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? It is true. If you could just learn what you can do at home that goes beyond mere brushing and flossing, you could be one of the ones who is able to avoid or reduce the need for expensive dental treatments!
What kind of things are helpful? Well, you should always check with your doctor before doing anything, here are a couple of things you can ask your dentist about. Ask if it is ok for you to try it at home.

There is a guide produced in easy to read, layman terminology form, that can really help you understand what is happening and what you can do about it. This applies if you are interested in prevention OR currently battling a problem. “Knowledge is Power”, as they say.
