Gum disease develops in the space between the gum line and the teeth. If left untreated, this oral health problem can damage more than your gums. According to everydayhealth.com, gum disease has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke and other health problems. The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research estimates that 80 percent of adults in the United States have some degree of gum disease.
