Catching Up on Your Dental Health

If you missed dental appointments during the pandemic, now is the time to catch up. The risk of getting COVID-19 from a dental appointment is very low, but the risk of not taking care of your teeth is high. Periodontal disease (gum disease) is an inflammatory process, and this chronic inflammation can precede health problems such as heart attacks and strokes. If you have symptoms such as bleeding gums, changes in the color of your gums and teeth, pain and swelling in your mouth, or more bad breath, make a dentist appointment as soon as you can.
