Healthy gums look pink, feel firm, and don’t bleed. Infected gums look red, swollen, and bleed when you brush or floss.

Since February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, we wanted to remind you that periodontal disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss. This is an avoidable problem if you follow these steps:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time
  • Floss between your teeth and gums daily
  • Get professional dental cleanings and exams regularly
  • Seek treatment at the first signs of gum disease

Don’t lose your smile to gum disease. Contact us online, or call the location nearest to you at 956-517-2695 for our Winfield office.
