Gum Disease: Affecting 80% of Population

According to the American Dental Association, gum disease affects about 80% of the US population. That's 4 out of every 5 people. Research has shown that gum disease leads to serious medical problems. And since gum disease is rarely painful in its early stages, you cannot tell there is anything wrong. But there are some signs that are universal to gum disease.

Signs of Gum Disease

As our San Marcos family dentist explains, some signs of gum disease are:

  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
  • Bad breath is usually present, though the patient is usually unaware
  • Loose teeth indicate a worsening of the gum disease process
  • Pain can start when gum disease has caused a moderate amount of damage to the jaw bone

Periodontal disease has been linked to heart attack, stroke and more. Follow this link to learn more about the correlation between gum disease and serious medical consequences.

Types of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a very broad category. The disease process ranges from mild disease with little damage to severe disease with extensive damage. Follow the links below to learn about different types of gum disease.
