Who does it affect?
Most adults will have some sort of gum disease during their lifetime. However, most people receive the right dental treatment when their gums begin to bleed or feel swollen that it never develops past gingivitis. Also, people who smoke or have diabetes are more susceptible to gum disease and should make sure to visit the dentist regularly.
How to treat it
Proper oral hygiene can prevent most forms of gum disease. Regular visits to your dentist will allow for them to clean up plaque and prevent gums from becoming inflamed. However, if gum disease goes untreated your teeth may begin to fall out or need to be pulled. As a result, your dentist would install dentures and bridge in order to replace the missing teeth.
