Gum disease is usually caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth, gums become irritated and inflamed. The irritated gum tissue can separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. Bacteria move into the pockets where they continue to promote irritation. Left untreated, the process can continue until the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues are destroyed. The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. It often results in gums that are red and swollen and may bleed easily.

Saturday, May 7, was Free Dental Day in Brattleboro. On that day, we were able to help community members who otherwise would not have been able to afford care. We are proud to be able to give back to this wonderful community. How rewarding for us to see the appreciation of our patients!

Saturday, May 21, was the Girls on the Run 5k. Girls on the Run is an esteem building program for young girls 3rd to 8th grade. The culmination of this program is a 5k run/walk. This was the 17th year for this Event. Dental Health team members have volunteered every year - selling t-shirts, applying face paints and hair color, and providing post-run refreshments.

Dental Health team members also participated in Bowl for Kid's Sake. This annual Event raises money and awareness for the Big Brothers / Big Sisters program of Youth Services. A big brother or big sister is a friend or companion to a child living under difficult circumstances.
