It lurks in the shadows, silently taking hold of your mouth and threatening your health. 

Gum disease is a sneaky infection that can creep up on you if you’re not careful about brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist on a regular basis. 

Only if caught early enough can it be reversed, so be sure to listen to the silent cries of your teeth when you notice changes like red, swollen gums, persistent bad breath, tooth sensitivity, or bleeding gums. 

Check out this retro public service announcement from the American Dental Association to hear more about gum disease, the number one cause of tooth loss. Then be sure you visit us for your next dental checkup so we can make sure this oral health problem isn’t threatening your smile!
