Healthy Gums Lacey


Everyone remembers the advice by their dentist to brush their teeth twice a day, even if not everyone follow it religiously! However, most people forget the accompanying instructions of ensuring proper gum care.

Having healthy gums is as important as having healthy teeth. Healthy gums are necessary not just for maintaining good oral hygiene, but for improving overall wellness of the human body. Poor gum care has been associated with serious medical conditions.

By taking proper care to prevent gum disease, you also reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections.

The good news is that Austin R. Smith III, DDS is here to help you prevent gum disease and have healthy gums. Visit our clinic in the Lacey, WA area for regular oral checkups and dental cleanings. Doing so ensures:

  • Early detection of gum disease
  • Timely treatment of gums to avoid severe dental decay
  • All health benefits from disease-free gums
  • A beautiful, confident smile

Lacey Gum Care


Besides coming to us for routine dental cleanings, you must take care not to skip brushing and flossing for even a single day if you want to enjoy healthy gums. Neglecting oral hygiene is the most common reason why patients visit us for periodontal treatment.

However, we know that gum care for our Lacey area patients should not be limited to regular brushing and flossing. You can encounter gum problems in spite of this. Some other factors that interfere with gum care and lead to poor gum health include:

  • Aggressive brushing
  • Smoking
  • Diet high in sugars and carbohydrates
  • Family history of gum problems

Being an ethical, service-oriented dental practice, we do not focus on promoting periodic visits to us for oral checkup, but do tell you about everything essential for healthy gums to our Lacey patients.
