Healthy gums contribute to a healthier, happier you. Research reveals periodontal (gum) disease can lead to a higher risk of serious health conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- Pre-term birth
- And much more!
In other words, the health of your mouth affects much more than the appearance of your smile—it affects the health of your whole body.
What are the signs of gum disease?
If your gums:
- Appear puffy, red, or swollen
- Bleed when brushing and flossing
- Are receding
You may be suffering from gum disease.
