People tend to think a lot about how their teeth are looking, but not so much about their gums. But your gums are essential for anchoring your teeth in your mouth. Even more noteworthy is the ever-increasing research showing that gum disease puts your overall health at risk.
And periodontal disease is common, affecting almost half of Americans over the age of thirty, according to the CDC.
Because gum infections often begin without noticeable symptoms, regular checkups are critical. For gum disease treatment and prevention in Willow Park, TX, call Texas Grins Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry at 817-779-7111. Or get in touch online.
