Gum disease can lead to tooth loss. It also can raise your risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, and complications of diabetes, among other systemic issues.

Since February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, we want to offer a reminder of the importance of brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings and exams. You also can get gum disease treatment from our team.

Our own Dr. Jeffrey Blankenship discusses gum disease in the video below. Take a moment to watch it. Then, contact us online or call 770-766-8995 to request an appointment at Blankenship Family Dentistry in Stone Mountain, GA.
