(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL - September is National Gum Care Month, and Phanord & Associates, P.A. is proud to join other dental practices and organizations across the nation to shine a light on the importance of maintaining healthy gums.
Healthy gums are essential for a beautiful smile and overall well-being. Neglecting gum health can lead to periodontal disease, also called gum disease. In its early-stage, periodontal disease is called gingivitis. In a more severe form, it's called periodontitis. In this stage, the bone may be lost, the gums may pull away from the tooth, and the teeth may become loose or even fall off. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 47.2% of adults aged 30 years and older have some form of periodontal disease.
"Simple daily habits like brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups can go a long way in preserving your gum health," said Dr. Kevin Phanord. "Getting into the habit of taking good care of your gums and teeth is the best way to prevent gum disease," added Dr. Kyle Phanord.
Drs. Phanord shared some warning signs of gum disease:
- Bad breath (Halitosis)
- Red or swollen gums
- Tender or bleeding gums
- Painful chewing
- Loose teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Gums that have pulled away from your teeth
