As children, our parents taught us that cavities were Enemy #1 in the fight for healthy teeth. While cavities, known by professionals as dental caries, certainly pose a threat to a huge number of people, especially school-aged children, a growing section of the dental and medical community believes that gum disease might be the biggest adversary in the push for nationwide dental health. Gum disease varies in severity from its milder form, known as gingivitis, to its more critical form, periodontitis.
In one form or another, gum disease will affect 75% of Americans at some point in their lives and, even more alarming, 43% of those people will lose six or more teeth to the disease by the time they turn 65.
If you have lost a tooth or several teeth to gum disease or tooth decay, or if you have cracks, chips, or old dental work, these imperfections can do more than simply spoil your smile. Missing or damaged teeth can cause many health issues as well.
