Gum disease not only affects your oral health but also impacts your overall health too. If left untreated, you increase your risk for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. It can be challenging to spot in the early stages, which is why it’s so important to keep up with your regular checkups.
We’re sharing a video about a few ways to prevent gum disease. Remember to:
- Brush twice a day and floss at least once
- Visit us twice a year for regular cleanings and exams
- Avoid or quit smoking
- Eat a healthy diet
If you are concerned your oral health is off track, make sure you visit us for a checkup. We’ll thoroughly clean your teeth and gums and do an exam to address issues like gum disease. It’s never too late! To schedule an appointment in New Orleans, LA, call 7 O’Clock Dental at 504-266-0664.
