Gum Disease

Preventing and treating gum disease

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults over 35 years old. It affects four out of five adults, but it can start at just about any age. Very often, this disease progresses slowly and is painless. So, you may not notice that you have it until it is serious, and when you are almost losing your teeth.
