Even people who brush and floss every day can be at risk for developing gum disease, which is why it's important to visit the dentist regularly. Recently, WorlDental.com published an article offering suggestions for other things that people can do to potentally help protect themselves from gum disease, outside of their normal dental care routine
First, the news source suggested drinking cranberry juice, without added sugar.
"This pure and healthy juice will not allow the harmful bacteria to stick to the teeth. This juice can be easily [procured from the health food stores, just make sure you purchase the one which is 100 percent natural, without added sugar. Consume about four to five ounces per day, and your teeth and gums [may be] protected from the bacteria attacks," according to the information provider.
Next, the news source suggested getting more vitamin C in the diet to avoid gum disease. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, vitamin C helps the body repair and maintain connective tissue and research has indicated that vitamin C deficiency may contribute to periodontal disease.
