- If your gums are bleeding, there’s a¬†very high chance¬†you have periodontal (gum) disease. Come for an appointment as soon as possible!
- An oral health care checkup at Maple Place Dental every 6 months applies¬†only to healthy gums. If you don’t have healthy gums, you’ll want to schedule a checkup at least every 3 months.
- Pay attention to your¬†back teeth¬†when brushing/flossing. We’ve found that patients at Maple Place Dental in Maple Ridge¬†focus too much on their visible front teeth.
- Proper oral health care includes¬†10 minutes of careful brushing and flossing.
- Mouthwash that¬†contains alcohol¬†can dry out your mouth and actually worsen your bad breath.
