Protect your overall well-being with great oral health!
It has been reported that more than ⅓ of the adult population has active gum disease.
Swollen and bleeding gums are early signs that your gums are infected with bacteria. If nothing is done, the infection can spread and destroy the structures that support your teeth in your jawbone. Eventually, your teeth can become so loose that they have to be extracted.
If you do have gum disease, it could be due to not seeing a dentist regularly and/or not taking good care of your teeth and gums at home. Gum disease has also been linked to increased risk for diabetes, heart disease, and even Alzheimer’s disease. If you have noticed your gums receding or observed bleeding from your gums while brushing or eating, don’t wait!
