As part of Gum Disease Awareness Month, we recently put together a short true-or-false quiz for you. Today, we want to discuss the importance of regular dental cleanings and examinations.

Preventive dentistry is a focal point of our practice at First Dental Associates. We want every patient who visits our dentist office in Reading, MA, to have a healthy mouth. That includes having healthy gums.

In this short video by the American Dental Association, you can learn signs that you may have gum disease and ways that dental professionals can identify gum disease.

The video also reminds you to brush and floss daily in your efforts to keep gum disease at bay and to make regular visits to the dentist.

To schedule your next cleaning and exam, contact us online or call [phone].
