Here is some vital news for anyone who cares about their dental health: periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is connected to heart disease. Fortunately, this condition is treatable at Alaska Premier Dental Group.
Common warning signs include:
- Gums that bleed often
- Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
- Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
- Gums that are loosening from the teeth
- A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
The best way to stay out of the gum disease danger zone is to brush and floss your teeth every day, twice a day. Regular checkups at Alaska Premier Dental Group are also essential. We offer gum disease treatment, as well as complete family dentistry services. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
