Don’t let periodontal disease destroy your smile. February is Gum Disease Awareness Month. Did you know that this inflammatory condition affects almost half of Americans over the age of thirty and is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults? Even more alarmingly, research shows that it may contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic diseases.
