Periodontitis

To treat periodontitis and keep your gums healthy, follow these instructions very carefully. Poor oral hygiene habits will quickly undo the treatments received.

At home

  • Brush your teeth at least three times a day and floss daily
  • Apply the MONS paste as recommended by your dentist

Recipe for the paste (do not prepare in advance)

  • Approx. ¾ tsp. baking soda
  • Approx. ¼ tsp. 3% peroxide (10 vol.)
  • Brush your teeth using regular toothpaste to remove plaque
  • Mix the baking soda and peroxide into a paste and put it on your toothbrush
  • Apply the paste on the edge of your gums, near your teeth, rinse.

For at least one year, see the dentist every three months for a cleaning. After one year, the dentist will re-evaluate the frequency of your cleanings.
