Looking for answers about gum disease?
It can be avoided and treated
Dr. Westman, dentist in Racine, WI: “Gum disease is a very common health concern. Research shows that in the United States more than 50% of adults have some form of periodontal (gum) disease!”
Periodontal or ‘gum’ disease often develops gradually and painlessly over the years. By the time obvious symptoms surface, it has become serious enough to affect your overall health, or put you in danger of losing teeth.
From age 30 and up, three out of four people are affected by bleeding gums. Gum disease is more common in adults, but it can affect anyone.
