Gum disease or periodontal disease is something that 75 percent of the
United States' population has some form of. There are different varying
degrees and it's actually the most common reason that adults lose teeth.
Obviously children lose teeth because they're supposed to. It is an
infection in the gums and therefore also in the bones once it gets to be
rather severe, and there is bone loss down into and around each of the
teeth. When that happens bacteria can take up residence and it can become a
systemic problem more so than just an oral problem.
