Periodontal disease doesn't care how old you are.

Posted Jan 18 2009 1:20am
A 23-year old man I work with was spitting blood when he went to the dentist. He had the beginning of periodontal disease. They caught it in time.

A 43-year old woman I work with didn't go to the dentist. Now she has chronic periodontal disease, she needs periodontal surgery, and she may lose her two front bottom teeth.

If you're not brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day and seeing a dental professional at least once a year, you may be at risk for periodontal disease.

Make dental health your priority. You can never begin too early or too late in life.

Keep smiling.
