Your oral health affects your overall health too. And healthy gums important for more than just your smile.
February is National Gum Disease Awareness Week, which makes it a good time to remind you that:
- Periodontal disease is a leading cause of tooth loss.
- Untreated gum disease can increase your risk of heart disease, too.
- Infected gums can leave you more likely to have complications related to diabetes.
At McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry, our team can help you prevent or treat gum disease. Either way, you have a good reason to visit our office in Charlotte, NC. Contact us online or call 704-766-8662 to request an appointment.
