Are You At Risk for Periodontal Disease? Part 3
What You Should Do:
• Seek the care of a dentist or hygienist if you have any of the risk factors.
• When applicable, smoking cessation and dietary counseling can provide you with support to modify your risk factors & behaviors.
• Replace failing dentistry, before it becomes urgent, to avoid the pain, inconvenience and added expense unplanned dentistry can involve.
• Reveal all risk factors to your dental health professional so they may best assist you.
