Dental Hygiene and Periodontal Health
The health of your gums can directly affect the condition of your teeth and the way they feel. Periodontal disease has been shown to be a factor in many systemic conditions such as heart, lung and digestive systems.
Gum disease can cuase bleeding, soreness and inflammation, bad breath and loose and discolored teeth.
It is important to maintain a healthy habit of brushing and flossing twice daily and to visit the dentist on a regular basis. Your dentist will advise you on the hygiene regiment that would keep you in optimal periodontal health.
