Gum Disease and Your Health
Many patients overlook the importance of early treatment for gum disease because they fail to see the link between periodontal disease and overall health. Several research studies show a link between advanced stages of gum disease and serious health issues, including heart disease, certain types of cancer, and diabetes. We encourage all patients to be aware of the warnings signs of gum disease, including inflamed gums, bad breath, loose teeth, and bleeding gums.
