According to some estimates, as much as 80% of the popular has some form of gum disease, even if just a mild form.
Gum disease is caused by an accumulation of bacteria and plaque around the teeth and gums. In the very earliest stages, you may not experience any noticeable symptoms. In more advanced cases, gum disease symptoms include:
- Sensitive gums
- Gums that bleed when you brush
- Frequent bad breath
- Loose teeth
- A receding gumline
