With September being recognized as National Gum Care Month,
you’ll no doubt hear over and over about the dangers of gum disease
all throughout the coming weeks. The hope behind this
is that you’ll finally make it a point to visit a general dentist in Vancouver, BC
for a checkup. Yet while routine
visits to Dr. Roshanzamir are required to help keep the dangers posed by
gingivitis at bay, they certainly are not all that’s needed to help guarantee
you good oral health.
Know Your Role
You definitely have a large role to play in the determining
the overall state of your oral cavity. While following a strict dental hygiene
schedule may take more effort than you’ve been willing to give up to this
point, consider this: it’s much easier (not to mention much cheaper) to prevent
then it is to deal and
manage its effects.
With that in mind, here is what’s needed on your part to help
ensure that the good care you receive from Dr. Roshanzamir succeeds in
preventing tooth problems:
: This goes without saying, but brushing daily after each meal is a vital
component of any good dental health regimen.
: Your toothbrush can only do so much. Flossing at least once a day
helps catch the plaque and food particles missed while brushing.
: Far more than just a tool to help freshen your breath, mouthwash
contains antibacterial agents that help to neutralize the microorganisms that
lead to gingivitis.
: Even with a good oral care routine, you could be genetically
predisposed to gum and periodontal disease. For example, men are at a greater
risk of developing it than women. Certain ethnicities also show a higher
prevalence of it than others. Discuss these risks with your dentist to
determine what added measures may be needed to overcome any potential
The health of your teeth and gums depends entirely on you.

support that with healthy diet, then there’s a good chance that gum disease
will never become a problem
plaguing your life. Dr. Roshanzamir and the rest of our staff are here to help
you in any way that we can. Call and schedule an appointment for a check-up
