Gum disease is a common condition with mild, but annoying results. There are two types of it: gingivitis and periodontitis. The latter is a more advanced form of the former. Both problems can be prevented with good dental maintenance, but if its too late follow these tips to manage it.
Many parents think that baby teeth are not important because the child will eventually lose them. However, regular dental visits are very important even for small children. Most dentists agree that children should start seeing the dentist at the age of one. In the past, experts stated that children did not need to see the dentist until the age of three. However, this can increase the risk of cavities.

When it comes to something as important as health care, honest personal endorsements are the best guide when people are making these decisions.
A COUPLE OF CENTURIES AGO it was very unusual for people to have their original teeth in their mouth on their 40th birthday! And as little as 50 years ago, half of the people you walked by over the age of 65 had already lost nearly all of their teeth. Today, that number has been drastically reduced.
