The Dangers of Gum Disease
Maintaining your oral health is about more than just preventing cavities. Gum disease is a serious threat to your overall oral health. While it may be easy to ignore issues such as mild gum inflammation, doing so can lead to the development of major issues with your gums and your overall health.
Mild gum inflammation, known as gingivitis, is a fairly common issue. It’s the leading cause of tooth loss in most of the modern world, which means it’s an issue that needs to be taken seriously. Gingivitis can lead to the development of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss and bone loss in the jaw.
