how can i prevent gum disease?
Regular dental visits together with excellent oral hygiene practices can reduce your risk of gum disease. However, factors such as stress, smoking, diabetes, pregnancy, genetics and poor health can affect the health of your gums. Left untreated, the progression of gum disease can cause irreversible damage to the supporting tissues around the teeth (the gums, periodontal ligaments and jaw bone). Once these supporting tissues are lost, they will never regrow.
