February is a Gum Disease Awareness Month – Please help us by raising public awareness of a disease that affects so many Americans and bust myths about the dangers of the disease, its symptoms and treatment options.
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissues and bone that support your teeth.
85% of US adults suffer from some degree of gum disease, making it one of the most common diseases in America – more common than cancer, diabetes, arthritis, or heart disease.
Yet, only 60% of those infected know they have gum disease. Worse yet, only 3% of adults with moderate to severe levels of gum disease will accept treatment.
Our Office will offer free gum disease screenings for new patients during the month of February.
