Why it's important to prevent periodontal disease

Mentor Dentist Tips: The #1 reason people over 30 years of age loose their teeth is gum disease. The germs that cause gum disease have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, hardening of the arteries, low birth weight babies and diabetes.

Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing, receding gums and bad breadth are warning signs of gum disease. Gum disease, otherwise known as periodontal disease, is a condition in which the gums, the supporting tissue, and the bone surrounding your teeth become infected and inflamed. Germs from plaque lodge between the tooth and gum and create this infection when they are not removed with regular dental cleanings. A complete dental exam can identify gum disease and lead to treatment that will save your teeth and improve your health.
