February is a month where most of us are thinking about showing a special someone appreciation, but did you know that it’s also the time where dentists are educating patients on how to take care of their oral health? It’s become so common, that it’s become Gum Disease Awareness Month!
Gum disease remains to be one of the most common chronic diseases not just in the United States, but around the world. This is the case for a number of reasons, but one of the most significant is because this infection often develops even when no symptoms are present. It’s just another reason why routine checkups at Blue Coast Dental are so important!
With that said, there are ways to catch the earliest signs of this dental problem before it has the chance to cause too much damage to your smile. Below, we encourage you to ask yourself the following questions regarding gum disease. If you answer “yes” to two or more, please give us a call as soon as possible so you can give your oral health the professional attention it needs!
