You will, more than likely, have to deal with gum disease during your life. If you are over 30 years old, it’s basically a coin flip as to whether you have periodontitis right now, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Bleeding and swollen gums can be just the start of the problems that come with gum infections. As the disease progresses, you may have persistent bad breath, changes to how your teeth fit together, and tooth loss.
With this in mind, take a moment to watch this short video by the American Dental Association. Then plan to visit our office. You can get the benefit of our preventive care and our gum disease treatment if you need it.
