At The Dentistry Place, we encourage patients to prevent gum disease by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting the dentist regularly. The risk of developing gum disease also increases if you smoke or use tobacco products, or if you have a systemic medical condition such as heart disease, diabetes or osteoporosis.
