On your last visit, you may have noticed we paid special attention to your gums. That’s because recent studies have shown a link between oral health and overall health, so keeping your gum tissue healthy is one of our top concerns.
You can do your part by keeping a close eye on your gums between appointments. If you notice swollen, red or bleeding gums in the mirror, it may be a sign of periodontal disease, which needs prompt attention.
Simply being aware and letting us know about any of these signs is the best way to ensure that your teeth, gums and whole body stay healthy for life.
