Ugh!!! Gum Disease!!

Make a commitment to yourself to improve your health and your smile today.  Did you know that 4 out of 5 people are walking around with the worst silent killer of teeth and it’s called periodontal disease to us dental clinical types but your probably no it as Gum Disease.

Yes it’s a disease, yes it can get kind of gross, but it is easily treatable and maybe even reversible if you stick with it!

Did you know gum disease has been linked to heart disease?   Yep and why do you think we stress flossing between your teeth so much?  If that food stays trapped between the teeth for hours and hours and days and days it causes the bacteria in your mouth to propagate and release toxins that cause the gums to become inflamed and bleed.  Yikes! 

So if it’s been a while since you’ve been to the dentist, don’t be embarrassed…. Just Do It, make an appointment today and get yourself taken care of!
