Gum disease is one of the most common dental problems adults face, but gum disease can begin at just about any age. Gum disease often develops slowly and without causing any pain. Sometimes you may not notice any signs until the disease is serious and you are in danger of losing teeth.
The good news is:
·gum disease can almost always be prevented,
·if it starts, it can be treated and
·it can even be turned around (or reversed) in its early stages
