dental payment plans Mission

Here is important news for anyone who cares about their dental health: gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is associated with heart disease. At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, gum disease is easy to treat if it is caught in the early stages.

What warning signs should you be looking for?

  • Bleeding gums
  • Tender, swollen, or reddish gums, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  • Sudden changes in your bite or your teeth
  • Loose gums or teeth
  • A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

Even if you aren’t seeing any of these symptoms, keep brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis. We recommend twice each day. It’s the best way to maintain dental health and prevent gum disease. Regular check-ups are also important.

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, we offer gum disease treatment. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to our practice for complete general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
