Gum disease is an epidemic, affecting half of Americans over the age of 30 and 70% of seniors. It is also serious, leading to tooth loss and increasing your chances of developing heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic health problems.
To keep gum disease at bay, it’s essential to practice good oral hygiene at home. As it often does not exhibit symptoms in its earliest stages, it’s also important to visit us at Davenport Dental Group every six month for a cleaning and exam.
