Gum Disease Symptoms and You (video)

Are you familiar with gum disease symptoms? Did you know you could have gum disease and not even know it?

 

Put simply, gum disease is infection below your gumline. Poor brushing and flossing habits lead to plaque buildup on your teeth that can then cause gum disease. Other factors contribute to gum disease as well, including:

 

  • Diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Chronic dry mouth (caused by many medications as well as radiation therapy for cancer)

 

Call Hugh D. Rosenblatt, DMD, PA at (561) 877-3802 to schedule an exam. Even if you don’t have gum disease symptoms, your smile could still be at risk. In the meantime, watch this short video about gum care and our other general dentistry services.
