PREVENTING GUM DISEASEThe leading cause of tooth loss in adults over the age of 35 is gum disease, which affects 75% of adults. Even with daily flossing and brushing, the first step in preventing the development of periodontal disease, professional attention is required.
The health of your gums may also decline due to:
- The use of tobacco
- Clenching/grinding of the teeth
- Poor nutrition
