Oral Health

Caring for your teeth and gums is an essential part to better overall health.

Brushing and flossing your teeth can protect your teeth from decay and prevent gum disease. Dental plaque (a thin film of bacteria) builds up on and around the gum line of your teeth. The bacteria produce acids that can break down your tooth structure and over time can create a hole in your enamel. Once this cavity forms a dentist must repair the hole. The plaque also irritates your gums (gingival) leading to gingivitis, an often painless swelling of the gums.

Gingivitis or bleeding gums can be an early indication of gum disease. If left untreated this can lead to periodontal disease which can result in tooth loss. Use Enamelon® daily to help prevent gingivitis.

Sensitivity is a very common condition. A sharp tooth pain or twinge may be experienced when consuming cold, hot or sugary foods and drinks. Sensitivity may occur when breathing in cold air. The ingredients in Enamelon® uniquely build increasing protection against tooth sensitivity.

You can protect your teeth and gums by:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Flossing once a day.
  • Visiting your dentist regularly for a checkup and cleaning.
  • Eating a well-balanced diet.
  • Quitting smoking. Smoking increases your risk for gum disease.

Changes in your health and lifestyles can affect your oral health.

Regular dental examinations and good oral hygiene can prevent most dental diseases from developing and some medical conditions from starting in your mouth. The American Dental Association (ADA) offers the following suggestions on finding a dentist that is right for you and your family:

  • Seek recommendations from family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors
  • Your medical doctor or local pharmacist
  • Search for a local ADA member dentist
