Anchorage, Alaska - Gum disease affects approximately 65 million people in the U.S. and is the leading cause of tooth loss in the country. As a result, Dr. Terry Preece of Healthy Smiles Dental recently posted a blog educating his readers on how to prevent periodontitis.
The blog on www.anchoragehealthysmiles.com further explains that periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease that can cause permanent damage to your gums and mouth. This disease also has been linked to other serious ailments including cardiac disease, strokes, diabetes, and more.
The Anchorage dentist suggests that raising awareness about periodontitis might help some patients find new ways of caring for their teeth. He hopes that his patients will have quicker and easier trips to his office if they follow the advice in his blogs.
Aside from merely discussing gum disease, Dr. Preece’s latest post suggests treatment plans and products the reader can discuss with his or her dentist if they are concerned they are concerned about their overall oral health. Taking care of one’s teeth is an important part of one’s overall health says Dr. Preece, and he hopes to make this practice a little bit easier for his readers by giving them some pointers that will help guide them along in the process.
