Biannual dentist visits are important to maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, as well as regular brushing and flossing at home. The only way to really know if you have gum disease is by having your dentist perform an oral examination. You may have gum disease without knowing, and if left untreated it can lead to tooth and bone loss. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth decay and tooth loss.
If you have noticed any of the following symptoms, contact Frontier Dental immediately for an examination:
- Bleeding or swollen gums after brushing and flossing
- Elongated teeth due to receding gums
- Persistent bad breath despite brushing
- Sensitive gums at the gum line
When detected early, gum disease can be treated. Late stage gum disease presents oral complications and will need dentist intervention.
For these reasons, it is important to schedule visits twice a year at our Medina, OH dental office. We welcome you to give us a call today to visit with Dr. Karunagaran!
