dental payment plans Sugar House

Here is important news for anyone who cares about their dental health: gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is associated with heart disease. At The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, gum disease is easy to treat if it is caught in the early stages.

What warning signs should you be looking for?

  • Gums that bleed often
  • Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  • Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don’t seem to fit together
  • Gums that are loosening from the teeth
  • A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

Even if you aren’t seeing any of these symptoms, keep brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis. We recommend twice each day. It’s the best way to maintain dental health and prevent gum disease.

Regular check-ups are also important.
