Periodontal (gum) disease is a common oral health condition that affects millions of US adults. In fact, some studies indicate as much as 80% of the population over the age of 65 struggles with some form of gum disease. The mildest type is often referred to as gingivitis, and the warning signs of this common disease are very mild. Unfortunately, gingivitis can be easily overlooked by the untrained eye. That’s why visiting a dentist regularly for a maintenance appointment is so important.
