Gum recession in Clark, New Jersey, is a painful and irritating dental issue that can take the beauty away from your smile. However, there are things you can do to prevent this issue, depending on the severity of the problem. Some of those things are:

-Take good care of your smile by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing your smile at least once a day.

-As you brush, use a soft-bristled toothbrush. The soft bristles will deeply clean your teeth and care for your gums. Make sure not to brush too vigorously.

-Visit your dentist twice a year for a dental checkup and cleaning. The treatment provided will remove the plaque and tartar that are irritating the gums.

-Align your teeth if you have a crooked smile.

-Consider using techniques that will help you stop grinding your teeth.

-Quit smoking if you smoke.

-Eat a well-balanced and healthy diet as often as possible.

-Monitor any changes that happen to your smile.
