Most people don’t know that the #1 factor behind losing teeth is periodontal disease that goes undiagnosed. You’ll be surprised to learn that 90% of adults have some sort of periodontal disease (gum disease). The disease itself begins without sufficient warning. It’s not like arthritis which you can clearly feel, but instead, starts with soreness of the gums.
Gum soreness progresses into gums that bleed easily and bad breath takes hold. As periodontal disease gets worse, your teeth loosen and slowly separate until your bite itself changes and you start to lose your teeth.
To prevent gum disease we incorporate careful evaluations into all checkups. Haven’t had a checkup in a while? Schedule yours today by calling or clicking below.
