Preventing Gum Disease in the Greater Pittsburgh Area

October 11, 2017 by editor

A major cause of tooth loss in adults is from gum disease, or periodontal disease, an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Most often, gum disease is painless, so you may not even know you have it.  Gum disease is caused when plaque, that sticky film of bacteria, forms on your teeth. Preventing or treating gum disease starts with professional teeth cleanings at your dentist’s office along with daily brushing and flossing.

The challenge for many adults is the lack of dental insurance which affords them the opportunity to receive professional cleanings on a routine basis.  Smart Health Dental is assisting adults and families with quality  dental insurance plans in Pittsburgh that offer affordable dental  plans for every budget!

Whether you are looking for a dental plan for your entire family or individual coverage, Smart Health Dental’s cost-effective dental plans are designed to meet your needs, ensuring you only pay for the coverage you need.  These plans offer 100% dental coverage on all routine exams, cleanings, X-rays, and more! Unlike many competitors, Smart Health Dental’s economical dental plans come with no waiting period – you can enjoy the benefits of your plan to its full extent the same moment that it becomes effective.

Here are some warning signs that can signal a problem with gum disease according to the American Dental Association (ADA) and should warrant a visit to your dentist because the sooner you treat it, the better:

  • gums that bleed easily
  • red, swollen, tender gums
  • gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • persistent bad breath or bad taste
  • permanent teeth that are loose or separating
  • any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
  • any change in the fit of partial dentures

Smart dental choices, coupled with a healthy oral care regimen, helps to avoid gum disease, cavities, enamel wear, and more. Smart Health Dental provides “Oral kits” which are shipped directly to their customers. An oral kit contains mouthwash, toothpaste, toothbrush, disposable flossers and convenient “on the go” mini toothbrush. This oral kit provides continued oral care between dental visits.
