“Gums” are the foundation of your teeth and your oral health. Recent studies have shown that gum health links directly to your general health and vice versa, including heart issues and diabetes among many other conditions.
Managing your gum health is therefore paramount to achieving good oral and general health, not to mention preventing issues such as bad breath and poor appearance.
Your gum screen at the oral health examination will highlight if you have severe gum disease, at which point it is crucial to see a Periodontal Specialist for treatment to prevent further issues such as loose teeth and loss of teeth.
