Category: Gum Disease

Gum disease is inflammation of the gums (gingivae) and damage to the bone that anchors teeth in the jaws. Gum disease is very common, affecting more than half of adults with natural teeth. It can be treated by a dentist or hygienist and, in the early stages, the effects can be reversed.. The main symptoms of gum disease are sore, bleeding gums during tooth brushing. Gum disease, not tooth decay, is the biggest cause of tooth loss. Only 60% of women in the UK aged 45 can claim to have all their own teeth. Gum disease isn’t just something that happens later in life, more than half of teenagers have some form of gum disease. Smoking causes 50% of all cases of gum disease
