Phanord & Associates P.A. and partner agencies observe National Gum Care Month

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL September is National Gum Care Month. Phanord & Associates, P.A., Sabal Palm Dental, P.A. and Caring Dental Services support this special observance to share the importance of gum health and disease prevention.

The gums or gingiva are the soft tissue that surrounds the teeth and the bones of the jaw. When the gums are not taken care of properly, they no longer help the teeth, putting them at risk. The inflammation or infection of the gums results in periodontal disease. Its early stage is called gingivitis, and the gums can become red and swollen. In a more severe form, the periodontal disease  is called periodontitis. In this stage, the bone may be lost, the gums may pull away from the tooth, and the teeth may become loose or even fall off. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 47.2% of adults aged 30 years and older have some form of periodontal disease.

“When patients notice redness or swelling around the gums, they should book a dental appointment immediately,” said Dr. Kevin Phanord. “Time is crucial; gingivitis can be reversed while periodontitis cannot.” “The good news is that both are preventable with proper oral hygiene,” added  Dr. Kyle Phanord.

Drs. Phanord shared some tips to keep gums healthy

  • Brush and floss every day to remove the bacteria that cause gum disease.
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Replace worn-out toothbrushes at least every three months.
  • Visit us twice a year for regular checkups and cleanings.
