Unhealthy gums can silently jeopardize your oral health, making Gum Disease Awareness Month a crucial reminder to prioritize prevention.
Daily brushing and flossing is your first line of defense against gum disease, removing plaque and bacteria. Routine dental cleanings and exams at Dallas Street Dental complement your efforts, allowing us to detect early signs of infection and prevent its progression.
Neglecting to make these vital routines a part of your lifestyle can lead to unhealthy gums, resulting in gingivitis and advanced periodontitis.
If your gums are already compromised, one of our Fort Smith, AR dentists can intervene with scaling and root planing, a non-surgical procedure that removes tartar and smoothens root surfaces.
Check out today’s video to learn more about how we can give your unhealthy gums some much-needed TLC and keep your natural teeth safe.
