Do you know the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States?
It’s not cavities. It’s not accidents or injuries.
It’s gum disease, also known as periodontal disease.
Roughly half of all adults 30 and older have some form of periodontitis (an advanced form of gum disease), according to the Centers for Disease Control. And your risk of developing gum health problems increases as you get older.
These are just a few reasons you should be making appointments for routine dental exams at Bell Dental Group if you live in or near Cincinnati, OH. We’ll be watching for any signs of gum infections. We also can treat any problems with state-of-the-art technology such as our Periolase dental laser.
