Did you know that hormonal fluctuations, such as during pregnancy, can make your gums more prone to gum disease? Or that some individuals can be genetically predisposed to gum disease?
To learn more about severe gum disease (periodontitis), check out Dr. Frederic Norkin’s article “But I brush my teeth: 10 causes of periodontitis that go beyond oral hygiene,” published April 5th on Dentistry IQ, a popular online source of information for dental professionals. Dr. Norkin explains how patients can be maintaining what they consider to be good oral hygiene and yet still experience gum disease.
