Gum Disease – The Silent Epidemic
According to the FDA, more than 75 percent of adults over age 35 have some form of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. The leading cause of adult tooth loss, gum disease is a silent epidemic that can progress painlessly and produce few obvious signs, even in the late stages when bone and connective tissues are destroyed. What’s more, gum infections can be linked to other serious conditions like heart disease and stroke.
