If you’re worried you might have gum disease, there’s good reason for that.
Gum disease affects nearly half of the U.S. adult population. That’s just under 65 million people! It’s one of the most common reasons people see the dentist.

Gum disease (known as periodontal disease) has serious consequences for your dental health. It’s a chronic condition that can proceed quickly in different people. In the worst cases, it results in teeth that are infected and loose and need to be removed.
We know that bleeding gums is closely connected to how we brush and floss. And most people that I see in the dental practice don’t brush and floss enough. But removing plaque is one part of the story.
