Dental Gum Disease
The Number One Cause of Tooth Loss
Many people think that most teeth are lost due to decay. But the main reason is periodontal (gum) disease. The symptoms are bleeding gums from brushing or flossing and also loose or shifting teeth. Sometimes there are no signs of infected gums until it reaches an advanced stage.
When gum disease is treated in the early stages, there are nonsurgical options to take care of the problem; otherwise, surgery may be necessary if the condition is advanced.
