12 May Gum Health Day 2021
May 12th is Gum Health Day and the slogan is ‘Gum diseases are preventable’.
This year’s campaign intends to raise public awareness of the signs and symptoms of gum diseases – gingivitis, periodontitis, and peri-implantitis.
Bleeding gums, bad breath, loose teeth can all be warning signs and sensitivity may be a consequence of periodontitis. There are also some big risk factors which increase your chances of getting gum disease like smoking and diabetes, and lots of others!
Remember – Gum diseases are preventable and you should visit your dental team to have an oral health assessment.
