Gum Disease is a Serious Problem For Too Many People

Unfortunately,  too many people suffer from this problem.   Equally unfortunate:  Most of those people do not know they have it!

Since many people do not believe or think they have this problem, they naturally do not do anything about it.   This might lead to gum recession and tooth loss.

Gum disease is considered to be the number one cause of tooth loss.   Replacements, such as implants are quite expensive.  Implants don't always work the first time.  This requires a waiting period and a second try.

The costs are high and who knows what the pain and recovery factors are.   I would prefer to keep my own natural teeth than find out.  You?

Brushing and Flossing

 These are certainly a good idea and should be done daily or at your dentist's recommendation.   However, are brushing and flossing enough?

For some people, they may be all that is needed and they may never develop gum disease.   However, it is a mistake to think that people who have gum disease don't 'take care of their teeth', because that isn't necessarily the truth.

Of course, not brushing and flossing is probably going to help a problem develop.   However, as stated before, dental pros tell us that  75% of people seem to have some gum disease.

In my way of thinking, this says that brushing and flossing are not enough for all people to remain safe from gum disease.  Therefore, while important, they may not be the answer for the majority.

I say that because a lot of people think that if a person has gum disease it means they do not take care of their teeth.    In reality, a person can brush and floss 'religiously' and still develop gum disease.

Don't be fooled by that simple mentality, the problem of gum disease can be a bit more complicated - but not too much so.
