March 20 is World Oral Health Day, so we think it’s the perfect time to brush up (pun intended!) on gum disease prevention!
We’ve compiled some of our best blogs on the subject so you don’t have to waste valuable time doing online research.
Blog #1 is all about gum disease risk factors. You might be surprised to learn the sort of things that increase your risk of periodontal infection. Read it and find out if any of them apply to you.
Blog #2 talks about the connection between diabetes and gum disease. Many people are unaware of the relationship between oral health and your overall health. If you or someone you love has diabetes, you’ll want to check out this blog!
Blog #3 is an infographic celebrating National Flossing Day! It’s the day after Thanksgiving, but flossing is something you’ll definitely want to make a part of your oral hygiene regimen every day of the year.
So if the first three blogs talk about gum disease risks and prevention, Blog #4 is one that offers hope. Hope to those of you who may have already been diagnosed with gum disease, or even those who’ve avoided regular dental checkups over the years.
One of the unfortunate consequences of periodontal disease is tooth loss. Our 4th blog talks about options for people with missing teeth or people who might have loose, shifting, or damaged teeth that are beyond saving.
At our Oregon Smile Care Center, we want to help you restore your smile. If gum disease has taken its toll on your oral health, we will do all we can to give you the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.
