Periodontal (Gum) Health
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over age 35. If your gums feel tender or sore, look red and swollen, or bleed every time you floss, you might have gum disease (from gingivitis to the various forms and stages of periodontitis). Untreated gum disease has been linked to an increased risk of stroke, heart disease, and other serious health problems, so please don’t skip your next dental checkup and cleaning.
