If you’re like many people, you sometimes cut corners when it comes to your oral health. Maybe you skip a brushing and flossing session here and there. You cancel one of your twice-yearly dental exams or teeth cleanings.
Over time, these habits can significantly increase your tooth decay risks, gum disease, and sudden root infections that require root canal therapy in Pikesville.
Gum disease is a serious oral health condition that can cause tooth loss and body health problems with your heart and lungs, and more!
Our dental team wants you to enjoy 2021 and have a healthy smile this year. For these reasons, we recommend taking steps to keep your smile healthy.
