Thanksgiving will be here soon. And the next day — National Flossing Day – is a good reason to remind you of the importance of care for your gums.

Gum disease contributes to a variety of health problems, such as:

  • Chronic bad breath
  • Infected teeth
  • Tooth loss

Flossing daily, along with brushing and regular dental checkups, can be invaluable in preventing periodontal problems.

Call Crofton Dental Center today at 301-261-3800 for an appointment in Crofton, MD if you suspect you may have gum disease. You can also schedule an appointment online.
