February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, a time designated to raise awareness about this widespread and potentially serious condition.
The Centers for Disease Control says about fifty percent of Americans over the age of thirty have some form of periodontal disease, and seventy percent of Americans over the age of 65 are afflicted.
Left untreated, this inflammatory condition can lead to tooth loss and contribute to serious systemic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
At Contemporary Dentistry & Implantology of Peabody, MA, we can help you prevent and treat gum disease.
