How do I know if I have bad breath?
A simple test is to use dental floss between your teeth to collect plaque.
Periodontitis is contagious.
If one of your relatives is infected, consider getting a consultation, you never know!
Periodontitis may cause the loosening and loss of teeth and have a negative impact on general health.
Dental implants can also be infected by this disease. So it’s important to learn to avoid infection.
The earlier the disease is diagnosed, the more aesthetic and functional consequences of the disease can be limited.
Periodontal disease may increase the risk of systemic diseases. The healthier your mouth is, the more better your overall health will be.
Periodontal disease can promote other diseases
Incorrect brushing technique, defective fillings, malocclusions, missing teeth, contaminated water, travel in tropical countries (such as the Caribbean and the West Indies), and diseases (including diabetes) decrease the immune system, making you vulnerable to infection and periodontal disease.
STOP THE MYTHS!
Bleeding gums is not normal. The gum disease is not inevitable.
