Gum disease in the United States has reached epidemic proportions. It is estimated that 85 percent of all adults suffer some form of the disease. About half of adults suffer with moderate or severe forms of gum disease.
So what are the common symptoms of gum disease? Here is some of most common evidence of periodontal disease: bleeding gums, bad breath, puffy inflammed gums and loose teeth are all signs of the oral condition. If you have any of these symptoms it's important you visit a dentist for a check-up. Your dentist will be able to diagnosis if you indeed suffer from gum disease.
If you are diagnosed with moderate or severe gum disease, it's important you act quickly. Here's why: periodontal disease will never get better on its own. It will only get worse.
