Gum disease is very common and as per various estimates effect 3 out of 4 adults over the age of 35. Moreover, 50% of smokers get gum disease. Gum Disease is a direct result of plaque and tartar build-up on teeth. This then results in swollen gums or soreness due to infection. This then leads to issues like Gingivitis and Periodontal disease. Some of the results can be receding gums, loss of bone, ultimately leading to weakened and lost teeth.
