Gum Disease Awareness Month in Tallahassee

February is Gum Disease Awareness Month. Did you know more than 80% of Americans are living with periodontal or gum disease, which most often than not, goes unnoticed? Because the symptoms are barely noticeable at first and there is no pain involved, it can be tough to recognize you have gum disease at all.

your gums are red, swollen and sore to the touch.your gums bleed when you eat, brush or see pus or other signs of infection around the gums and teeth.your gums look as if they are "pulling away" from the frequently have bad breath or notice a bad taste in your mouth.or some of your teeth are loose or feel as if they are moving away from the other teeth.

Burch Orthodontics: 3 Facts about Your Tooth

At Burch Orthodontics, our mission is to create lasting relationships with our patients, honoring the trust they have placed with us while creating incredible smiles! Your smile is our number one priority. Our teeth say a lot about our health and a healthy oral hygiene routine will keep your smile shining bright all year round in Tallahassee. Here are 3 facts you may not know about your teeth.

1. Baby Teeth: Baby teeth are more important than we realize. Baby teeth hold space for the permanent teeth that follow – it’s important to hang onto them until they’re ready to come out on their own.

2. The part of the tooth you see, the crown is only about a quarter to a third of the entire tooth. The rest of the tooth is under the gums.

3. A cavity is one of the few things the body cannot heal. It just gets larger with time, unless a dentist removes the decay and places a filling.
