Ignoring gingivitis is folly: Health issues associated with disease can become chronic, lifelong
from Postmedia News via The Vancouver Sun
If you can't afford the basic tools to prevent gingivitis, you are likely to be among the 1 in 2 Canadians who has it. Vancouver resident Eileen Kirby knows this from experience. She has endured issues with inflamed gums and sensitive teeth for more than 35 years. "I started having problems back in my 20s and I'm 60 now," says Kirby, a volunteer at a dental clinic in Vancouver. "I did brush my teeth, but in those days when you were on welfare, they wouldn't send you to the dentist unless you had to have a tooth pulled. Things had to get pretty bad before they'd do anything. And when you haven't got any money, you don't get a new toothbrush as often as you're supposed to and you even have to budget the amount of toothpaste you use. That's why I brushed no more than once a day."
