Gum (periodontal) disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.
People with gum disease are twice as likely to develop heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
30% of people over age 50 have advanced gum disease.
Statistics don’t lie. Gum disease is a serious problem. The bacteria that cause gum disease wreak havoc with oral health and negatively impact overall wellbeing. Osteoporosis, dementia, low birth weight, respiratory problems, and more have all been linked to gum disease.
