Don’t Risk Losing Your Smile to Gum Disease (quiz)

decay_prevention_2 Advanced Dental Center of Florence, SC | Dr. Joseph Griffin

If you like having teeth, then you need to pay attention to your gums. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States.

In spite of this, surveys show that less than half of all Americans floss daily. Brushing your teeth is important, but there are places in your mouth that a toothbrush can’t clean very well. Flossing is how you get those harder to reach places between your teeth and below your gumline. Plaque and tartar buildup in those areas can lead to gum infections and periodontal problems.

We offer highly effective treatments and preventive care at Advanced Dental Center of Florence. We’ll discuss some of them in our next post.

For now, we want our patients in and around Florence, SC, to be aware of their risk of developing this oral problem. Take a moment to answer a few questions below, then call 843-627-4076 or contact us online to schedule your next dental appointment with us.
