Oral Hygiene and Dental Visits

Seventy-five percent of adults in our country will be affected by bleeding gums secondary to gingivitis in their lifetime. An antibacterial mouthwash (Scope, Listerine, etc.) should be gargled/swished at least twice a day (bid) and three or four times a day (tid or qid), if possible, in addition to dental flossing once a day, and brushing after meals, while at home. An anti-plaque rinse post-flossing is urged (e.g., Oral-B). Prophylactic cleaning by a professional dental hygienist to remove plaque build-up should be done twice a year without fail.
