You brush and floss every single day, and you visit the dentist every six months for routine checkups.
So if you’re doing everything right, why did your hygienist find pockets of periodontal infection in your mouth during your last dental cleaning and exam?
It could mean that you’re at a higher risk for gum disease because of genetics, age, or a host of other reasons, but knowing your risk will make it easier to keep this dangerous infection under control.
Take it from Naydu, the patient in today’s video, who visits us more frequently so we can help her fight against gum disease and preserve her beautiful smile!
February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, so it’s the perfect time to see your Jeffersonville dentist to find out more about your personal risk and how to protect your oral health.
