Gum disease affects as many as 4 in 5 people in the United States. While it’s always better to prevent periodontal disease, it’s important to take action at the first signs of gingivitis, which is the early stage of gum disease.

The American Dental Association created the video below as a reminder of what you can do to prevent gingivitis, which can lead to mores serious issues.

Healthy gums look pink and feel firm to the touch. If your gums appear red, swollen, or both, this could be a symptom of gingivitis. You also should be aware if your gums bleed when your brush or floss. These are the things we look for when you visit our dentist office in Reading, MA, for a professional cleaning and exam.
