The Friday after Thanksgiving is National Flossing Day. It’s also a good time to remind you of the consequences of gum disease.
In the advanced stages, periodontal problems can include persistent bad breath, sore or painful gums, and loose teeth. In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States.
You can greatly reduce your risk of those problems by practicing preventive care. This should include brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing every day, and visiting Dallas Street Dental for professional cleanings and exams. If you haven’t scheduled your next dental appointment with us, call 479-668-3109 or contact us online to request a visit to our Fort Smith, AR office.
