Often a silent threat, gum disease is present in the mouths of millions of Americans. Many are unaware or ignore the signs and symptoms of gum disease, only to invite further oral health complications and life-changing systemic problems, such as:
Gum disease begins as gingivitis, a condition completely reversible if caught early on. Left to progress, the disease process moves on to periodontitis, which is where irreversible destruction of the supporting bone and gum attachment begins. Advanced periodontitis is the most severe, and is characterized by advanced bone loss, tooth mobility and tissue destruction – and eventually leads to tooth loss in the absence of effective treatment.
*Pain typically is not a symptom of gum disease.
