What Is Gum Disease, and How Can It Be Cured?

What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also knows as periodontal disease, is something that 75% of people in the United States have had issues with. There are different varying degrees of gum disease, and it’s actually the most common reason that adults lose their teeth. 

Gum disease is an infection in the gums, and therefore also in the bones once it gets to be rather severe. This causes bone loss down into and around each of the teeth. When that happens, bacteria gets into your bone and blood stream and can become a system problem, not just an oral problem.
