Tooth talk: Treating periodontal disease
from Lockport Union-Sun & Journal
While spending money on fancy tooth whiteners for a selfie-ready smile, many people are overlooking an oral issue far worse than a cavity or chipped tooth. The American Dental Association reported that about half of all adults will have some form of periodontal disease, the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults aged 35 and older. PD ranges from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that can result in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth.
