Local Lehigh Valley Dentists Warn People of the Risks of Gum Disease
While widely common, periodontal disease is actually one of the most serious dental diseases since it has been shown to increase risks of diabetes and other cardiovascular diseases. Concerned Lehigh Valley dentists remind people to see their local dentists at the first sign of gum inflammation, medically referred to as gingivitis. They explain that gum disease is an infection in the gums caused by bacteria in plaque, and can easily be determined by bleeding during brushing of teeth.
