Maintaining Good Oral Health

Dental work, orthodontic braces, certain medical conditions, and other factors can
make maintaining good dental care challenging.

Did You Know?
  • Bacterial build-up in and around dental implants can lead to peri-implant disease and infection
  • Bleeding gums are a sign of gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease
  • Dental braces can create oral health problems such as gingivitis and decalcification (white marks) on the teeth
  • Pregnancy gingivitis is caused by an increased level of progesterone due to pregnancy
  • People with diabetes, especially those with poor blood glucose control, are at a higher risk for gum disease
  • Bacteria that cause gum disease can produce a volatile sulfur compound, the agent often responsible for bad breath
  • Smoking is a major risk factor for developing gum disease
