Did you know that the average Canadian life expectancy is approximately 82 years old! And, about 7 of every 10 Canadians will develop gum disease to some degree or another throughout their lifetime!
Gum disease is a bacterial infection that not only compromises oral health, but overall health and wellbeing.
In the early stages of gum disease the signs and symptoms are quite often painless, allowing the condition to progress subtly with very few warning signs, and in some instances only affect a few teeth (such as molars).
As our life expectancy continues to increase, early diagnosis and prevention are KEY factors to ensure we keep our teeth functionally and esthetically, sound for the duration of our life!
