Gum disease affects around 1 in 5 people. If you have gum disease, your body's inflammatory response to plaque on your teeth results in bone loss and inflammation around your mouth and jaws. This not only ends up making your teeth loose, but it also is being linked to heart disease and other health problems! There is no cure for gum disease but it can be treated and damage to your teeth and jaws can be kept to a minimum with excellent oral hygiene and the right treatment.
