Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an oral health issue that affects over 80% of the population to some degree. In the early stages, people often experience bad breath, redness, painful chewing, and soreness that causes bleeding.
At Bay Street Dental Group, we help our patients with holistic gum disease prevention and advise them on how to achieve good dental hygiene.
Recent studies have highlighted the link between gum disease and many other critical health conditions, including stroke, heart disease, diabetes, respiratory diseases, and much more. While the disease is a serious health condition, it can still be curable with proper treatment and good dental hygiene practices.
