Gum disease is very common with gingivitis affecting almost everyone at some stage in their life. Periodontitis is a more severe form whereby the bone around the teeth can begin to deteriorate, resulting in pain and loose teeth. It is very important to maintain adequate oral hygiene at home as well as regular professional visits to the dentist to ensure that any gum disease is identified early and treated before it becomes irreversible.
