Our teeth are a vital part of our bodies, allowing us to eat, talk, and smile with ease, but consistent care is required to keep them healthy. Gum disease is one oral ailment that will not only irritate your gums, but also endanger your teeth. Diagnosing, treating, and preventing gum disease can help you maintain your dental health.
Regular flossing and brushing keep your gums healthy, but if your gums bleed when you floss or brush, you may have mild periodontal disease. To learn more about gum disease and signs you should look for and discuss with your dentist, watch this short video.
