February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, which is a great time to remind you that you need to show your gums some love.

Periodontal disease is one of the biggest contributors to tooth loss. In the United States, nearly half of adults 30 and older have periodontitis as do 7 in 10 people 65 and older, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This is why we conduct a periodontal exam when you come in for a checkup. Take a moment to watch this short video by the American Dental Association.
