Many adults fear the possibility of losing a permanent tooth. Fortunately, there are many things that you can do to prevent permanent tooth loss. Knowing the risk factors and what you can do to prevent this problem can help you keep your own teeth throughout your adult life.
1. Brush Your Teeth Twice Daily
Brush your teeth at least twice each day — once in the morning and once in the evening before bed. When brushing your teeth, spend about two minutes total, gently brushing your teeth in small circular motions with the toothbrush.
If you notice problems like blood on the toothbrush, this could be a sign of gum disease. Make an appointment with your dentist to have the problem inspected.
