February is a time to spotlight your gum health because it’s Gum Disease Awareness Month. Your Swedesboro, NJ dentist, Dr. Fox wants to help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime, which is why we prioritize gum disease prevention and advanced treatments.

First, it’s important to remember that your daily regimen of brushing and flossing plays a pivotal role in thwarting the onset of gum disease by keeping your mouth clean of harmful plaque and bacteria. 

Regular dental check-ups at Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox, DMD will help to fortify this defense, allowing us to identify early signs of periodontal infection and curbing its progression. 

Without this dedication to your oral health, gum disease can manifest as gingivitis or advanced periodontitis, putting you at risk for tooth loss and costly replacement solutions.

Prevention is a key factor in protecting your smile, but we also offer several strategies for restoring your gums back to health. Beyond traditional deep cleanings, Dr. Fox also performs the innovative pinhole technique for easier, more comfortable gum surgery and faster recovery. Let us help you maintain a healthy smile for life!
