A full set of teeth makes your smile more attractive. If you want to keep those teeth, then you need to maintain your healthy gums. Periodontal disease causes more tooth loss than anything else in the United States.
Your risk of developing gum disease is affected by a variety of factors. Some you can control, and some you can’t. Your daily oral hygiene (or lack thereof) and family history are just a couple of examples.
Whether you want to prevent or treat gum problems, you should plan to visit our office in Decatur, AL. Call 256-274-8680 or contact us online to set up an appointment at Charles F. Betts, Jr., DMD, Family Dentistry.
