It might surprise you to learn that gum disease isn’t just bad for your oral health, but for your whole body too. Gum disease has been known to increase your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

That’s why it’s so important to practice good oral hygiene habits! We’re sharing a video by Delta Dental, one of the insurance providers we accept, that talks about ways you can avoid gum disease. By using proper brushing techniques and flossing correctly, you are ahead of the game in terms of your oral health. Make sure you also visit us twice a year for your cleaning and exam too

You can also take comfort in knowing that if you do show signs of gum disease, we can treat the infection and get you back to good oral health.
