With your gums being the foundation for your teeth, it is imperative that you keep them healthy. Studies show that untreated gum disease (periodontal disease) is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. Recent data even suggests a possible association between periodontal disease and other health issues including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and preterm low birth-weight babies. When you notice that your gums are red or swollen, take that as a warning sign to get to the dentist. If they bleed when you brush or floss, see that as an indication of serious gum health issues.Nipping them in the bud, with professional cleanings and periodontal care, our expert dental care team strives to protect the health and functionality of your entire mouth.
