If it’s not on your calendar yet, you’d better get it on there quick! June 19th is National Kissing Day in the United States. We’re actually really not completely sure how this day arrived as a day to honor kissing, however as dental professionals, we love celebrating anything to do with a healthy mouth.
So, are you ready for a big smooch? If not, why not? Are you suffering from gums that are tender? Do you have consistently bad breath? Do you have areas of pus between some of your teeth or gums? If so, this is not a good way to embark on a day when kissing is a must!
If you’re suffering from any of these mouth issues it could be a warning sign that you have periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is an infection that affects the tissues and bone that support your teeth. Not only does periodontal disease affect your mouth and gums, it also can lead to other serious medical conditions.
If you’re not ready for June 19th, you need to book your appointment with Ambler Dental Care today! Dr. Sampat offers Periodontal Therapy to help fight gum disease and restore the overall health of your mouth and your body.
Dr. Sampat will begin treating you with a special cleaning called scaling and root planing. During this treatment, plaque and tartar are carefully and skillfully removed down to the bottom of each periodontal pocket. This process helps the gum tissue heal and reattach to the tooth through a smoothing process of the root surfaces.
Call Ambler Dental Care today to get you on the road to a mouth that is healthy and kissable.
