Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. This disease has been linked to other serious health issues, including strokes and heart attacks. Gum disease first develops through infection of the gums and is one of the most prominent cause of tooth loss among the adult population. With regular check ups with your dentist, brushing and flossing, you can prevent gum disease.
Mouth sores have many different culprits, including fever blisters, cold sores, canker sores, ulcers and thrush. Although mouth sores can be bothersome and pesky, they shouldn’t last more than a couple of weeks at a time. If you’re suffering from mouth sores for longer than you had hoped, give your local dentist a call.
