Perhaps the least expensive and most effective way to prevent gum disease is by adopting a consistent oral health and hygiene routine. However, brushing after every meal and snack is not enough to remove food particles and plaque from in between your teeth. Flossing at least once, but preferably twice a day is essential for maintaining proper oral health and preventing gum disease.

Professional Services

Every six months, you should come to our Fresno office for general dentistry services such as cleanings and examinations. The frequency of these appointments is important as gum disease can spread quickly and lead to serious problems when not caught early on. In addition, issues such as tooth decay, oral cancer, and even neuromuscular disorders such as TMJ can be diagnosed during your biannual visits, making them an important part of your overall oral healthcare.

Dr. Gregory Miyake has over three decades of experience helping men and women throughout the Fresno area maintain proper oral health and prevent issues such as gum disease. During your regularly scheduled appointments he will be happy to discuss your home routine and help you optimize it to avoid oral health problems and maintain a strong and healthy smile for years to come.
