February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, but you should stay alert for periodontal problems all throughout the year. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in the United States. It also comes with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes complications, heart attacks, and other health concerns.

With that in mind, we welcome you to visit us soon either for preventive care or for gum disease treatment. In the meantime, take a few moments to watch this short video about periodontal exams by the American Dental Association.
