In a perfect world, you would never have to worry about periodontal problems. The reality is that most people don’t follow the American Dental Association’s recommendation to floss daily. The Centers for Disease Control has also found that most Americans 30 years and older have some form of gum infection.
At Advanced Dental Center in Florence, SC, we have the training and skills to treat gum disease. However, preventive care can keep your gums healthy. Remember to brush and floss daily, and (when you are able), schedule regular dental cleanings and exams at our office.
