Dentists confirm that round 80% of the population have some kind of Gum disease.
Periodontal diseases vary from being simple gum inflammation to serious issues causing major damage to the soft tissue & bone holding the teeth. In the worst cases they can even cause tooth loss.
Bacteria in our mouth along with mucus or other food particles and forms a sticky and colorless plaque. Regular brushing and flossing can remove plaque. But hardened plaque can only be removed by dentists. Gingivitis (inflammation of the gum where the gums become swollen, red and start bleeding) later leads to more severe Periodontists (gum creates pockets around the tooth which destroys the tooth as it becomes loose).
