Periodontal disease is a gum infection that typically results from poor oral hygiene practices. Eventually, the disease can damage your gums and destroy your jawbone, the bone that protects and supports your teeth. Whether you’re in the initial stage of gingivitis or the more serious phase of advanced periodontitis, measures can be taken to treat the disease and prevent further damage to your mouth.
At Red Bank Smiles, we suggest using a mouthwash to remedy periodontal disease. Mouthwash not only helps to freshen your breath, but it can kill the harmful bacteria that damage your teeth and gums. We recommend using LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash to help treat your case of periodontal disease.
Eliminate the germs in your mouth that contribute to the bad breath, red and swollen gums and other effects of periodontal disease with LISTERINE® Antiseptic Mouthwash. Choose from Soft Mint, Freshburst and Cool Mint flavors to gargle daily after brushing your teeth. These LISTERINE® mouthwashes are ideal for treating periodontal disease because they use antiseptic substances to kill existing bacteria and prevent the growth of future germs in your mouth. They are also designed to reduce gingivitis and plaque build-up. Previously these products contained alcohol, we recommend alcohol free which will not irritate the gums.
