How Healthy Are Your Gums? (quiz)
- February 1, 2019
February is many things, including Gum Disease Awareness Month. That makes this a great time for you to assess the condition of your smile.
In case you needed a reason to care, periodontal disease causes more tooth loss in the United States than any other cause. Also, gum infections have been linked to a higher risk of cardiovascular and heart disease and to complications with diabetes among other health issues. With that in mind, we’ve put together a short self-assessment you can use to decide if you should ask about our non-surgical gum disease treatment.
