The good thing about periodontal disease
Saturday, October 30, 2010      10 comments

A little embarrassing, but I have the early stages of periodontal disease.... thanks to poor genetics. As much as I floss and am meticulous about keeping my teeth and gums clean, I am only slowing the process of the inevitable. I hate that ... Read more
