What Is A Periodontal Exam?
If you’re like most Americans, you probably take your gums for granted, focusing your oral healthcare on your teeth. However, maintaining your periodontal tissue is just as important as cleaning your teeth when it comes to keeping your smile healthy. Unfortunately, the American Dental Association recently reported that, “according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - periodontal disease affects nearly half of the U.S. population.”
At The Teeth People, our team is here to help you avoid becoming part of this sobering statistic. Educating yourself about your gums and attending regular checkups can go a long way in keeping your mouth healthy.
