Gum disease? Definitely not a laughing matter!
Gum disease may refer to Gingivitis and Periodontitis. Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums due to bacterial plaque adherent to tooth surface. Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease affecting the gum and bone tissue. Periodontitis involves progression of bone loss, eventually leading to loosening of teeth and eventual loss of teeth if left untreated.
