Did You Know Bleeding Gums are Dangerous?

Bleeding gums is a sign of gum disease and doubles the risk of heart attack and triples the risk for stroke.  That is why Dr. Ferullo and his St. Petersburg Dental office staff feel it is so important for people to be aware of this.  For the last five years, they have tried to inform others all year about the importance of preventative dental care, regular dental checkups and cleanings to improve you oral and overall health.
