Your dentist, Dr. Stephen Kwitnicki, and dental team care about you and your smile, which is why we encourage you to take good care of your smile each and every day.

However, there is another way you can take care of your teeth and gums in addition to brushing, flossing, and rinsing. That is by preventing gum recession by doing the following things:

-Keep up on oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing your smile at least once a day.

-As you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush gently. In addition, make sure you’re brushing correctly. If you need help doing so, feel free to ask your dentist for tips.

-Visit your dentist every six months for a professional teeth-cleaning treatment. This treatment will remove the plaque and tartar that are irritating your gums.

-Correct your misaligned teeth if you have a crooked smile.

-Use techniques that help you stop your teeth-grinding habit.

-Quit using tobacco products, especially cigarettes.

-Eat a well-balanced and healthy diet.

-Keep track of any changes that happen to your mouth.

Gum recession in Union, New Jersey, is a common but painful dental issue that involves your gums moving away from your teeth and exposing your tooth roots. If you don’t prevent this issue, there is a chance you can suffer from tooth sensitivity and smile infection. So, it’s best to take great care of your smile as much as possible.
