Asthma sufferers might be more likely to suffer from a serious gum disease condition known as periodontal disease. This can damage teeth and require multiple trips to the dentist. If you have been diagnosed with asthma, what steps can you take to protect your oral health?

– If you notice symptoms like bleeding gums when brushing, see your dentist.
– Breathing through your nose will prevent protective saliva from drying up.
