The day after Thanksgiving is the start of the Christmas shopping season.

But it’s also National Flossing Day.

That makes this a good time to give you a gentle reminder that flossing is important in preventing gum infections and tooth loss. In the United States, periodontal disease causes more tooth loss than any other factor. We’ve created an infographic below to help you recognize the signs and symptoms of gum disease.

Our team in Shorewood, IL can help you prevent and treat those problems. To request an appointment at Shorewood Family Dental Care, call 815-725-5991 or contact us online.
