Periodontal Disease and Gum Disease
Almost 8 out of 10 American adults over the age of 35 have some form of periodontal disease. If left untreated, gum disease can cause bad breath, swollen and receding gums, extremely sensitive teeth, and eventual tooth loss.
Studies have also indicated a relationship between gum disease and serious medical conditions including cardiovascular disease, stroke, bacterial pneumonia, and cancer.
