Posted .

Have you ever wondered why gum disease is so dangerous for your oral health? If so, we have good news for you! Our team here at Williams and Williams Facial and Oral Surgery in Dallas, Texas, is happy to give you some basic information and insight on gum disease and why it is a threat to your oral health.

Gum disease can cause damage to your smile in many ways. Symptoms of gum disease can cause bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, permanent wobbly teeth that are loose and separating from the gum line, tooth loss, swollen gums, and even bone loss, which is why it is vital to keep away from gum disease when possible.

In the war against gum disease, we do have weapons we can use against it, such as floss, your toothbrush, and mouthwash. By brushing regularly and flossing each day, you can lower your chance of cavities and gum disease. However, the most important key to fighting gum disease is by making an appointment regularly with Dr. Todd A. Williams. Your semi-annual checkup is vital to winning the war against gum disease and keeping your smile healthy and strong.
