Marijuana and Your Gums

In light of the push in Michigan and across the country for marijuana legalization and an increased use of marijuana in our age group, I would like to share a recent finding.

Researchers have found that frequent recreational marijuana use may increase your risk for periodontal disease, which is characterized by gum inflammation and bone loss. This can affect your mouth and the overall health of your body. If you use cannabis, we encourage you to call us to set up a screening appointment to ensure that your gums stay healthy.

Protect your smile with a quick trip to our office to have your gums checked out!
