Healthy Living Requires Healthy Gums - Part 2!
Periodontal disease is often difficult to detect on your own, but it can have serious implications for your overall health.
Many people with periodontal disease are not even aware they have it.
We actually wish periodontal disease hurt! Pain is typically a clear indication to people that there is a problem with their body. Unfortunately, periodontitis often presents as signs (conditions that can be seen/detected during a clinical exam) without obvious symptoms (conditions you can detect yourself such as pain, bleeding, and tooth movement) until it develops into a very advanced stage. Without regular thorough dental exams and very effective communication, you may not realize you have periodontal disease.
