More than 75% of adults have some form of gum disease and only 51% floss every day. The encouraging news is that gum disease can almost always be prevented!
Brush Right: Brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes twice daily.
Floss Daily: If you don’t floss, you’re missing 35% of your tooth surfaces. It’s essential to floss to clean where your brush can’t.
Visit Us Regularly: Checkups and cleanings are a critical part of oral health care. Keeping a regular schedule will also help us catch problems early, before they develop into larger ones.
Gum disease has also been linked to over 200 illnesses, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
