Periodontal Disease: Am I at Risk? [quiz]

Here is a question for you: what is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults? Did you guess tooth decay? Understandable, but the correct answer is gum disease, or periodontal disease. Taking care of your gums is just as important as keeping your teeth in optimal health.

While anyone can get gum disease, certain factors make some people more susceptible than others. Take this quiz to assess your risk, then book a cleaning and exam at Marineland Dental Care of Kennewick, WA. Regular checkups are important even if your mouth feels fine, because gum disease often doesn’t have symptoms in its early stages.
