Healthy gums are essential for maintaining or restoring a healthy smile. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, and it can lead to infected teeth as well.
At Charles F. Betts Family Dentistry, we want all our patients in and around Decatur, AL to keep their smiles intact. It’s why we encourage preventive care including regular dental cleanings and daily brushing and flossing. And since the day after Thanksgiving is National Flossing Day, we thought we would share some of the common symptoms of periodontal disease.
