Nearly half of our population, between the agef of 18 and 79, suffer from inflammation of the gums or destructive gum disease. Bleeding, often a prominent sign of periodontal or gum disease, tends to diminish as the disease becomes more chronic. This is often mistaken for a sign of improvement, giving the patient a false sense of security. DO NOT- NEGLECT PERIODONTAL DISEASE. Before 35, the majority of teeth lost are dm to cavities. After that period periodontal disease is the majority cause. REGULAR TOOTH BRUSHING IMPORTANT.
