Learn the Signs of Gum Disease [infographic]
It’s Gum Disease Awareness Month. How much do you know about this inflammatory disorder that the Centers for Disease Control says affects almost half of Americans over the age of thirty?
Knowing your risk and watching out for symptoms is vital because the easier gum disease, or periodontal disease, is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat. Left to progress, it will lead to tooth loss and may contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic problems.
Regular dental cleanings and exams are important to keeping your gums in good shape. For gum disease diagnosis and treatment, call Gilbart Dental Care of Frederick (240-513-7523) and Hagerstown (240-347-0910) MD. You may also reach us online.
