Gum disease affects nearly half of adults 30 and older and 70 percent of adults over 65. That’s according to the Centers for Disease Control. Tobacco use, family history, and poor oral hygiene are just some of the factors that can increase your risk of gum disease.
Why are we bringing this up today? February is Gum Disease Awareness Month. As such, our dentist office in Gillette, WY, wants you to learn how to spot periodontal disease so you will know when to get treatment.
