Oklahoma Declares February As 'Gum Disease Awareness Month'

I found the original article here.  

What I like about the article is that it helps to underscore how drastic the problem is.  Generally speaking, most dental health professionals are going to say that about 75% of people have gum disease right now.

The biggest question  you should have after reading that is:  Am I one of that 75%?   Statistically speaking, the odds are not in your favor!

What I don't like about the article

This article does not tell the public what they can do to prevent or mitigate this problem.  It seems only to seek to tell people the problem exists.

This lack of information is one of the major reasons I wrote the book:  What You Should Know About Gum Disease: A Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease. 

It's interesting to me that the public still has little understanding of what the problem is and what they can do to fight against or prevent it from occurring in the first place.

Why Is The Right Information Obscured?

I honestly don't have a good answer to explain why people in general, after all of this time, still do not know what a threat gum disease is to their health and their wallets.

Yet, the fact remains that the majority of people are ignorant and will end up losing teeth and / or spending a LOT of money on expensive treatments as they age.

Perhaps the book mentioned above will give you a better chance than average person of succeeding to stave off this problem as well as save yourself a lot of money in the long run.

I can only point people to it.  But, I cannot make anyone pay attention.  I hope you will be different.  I think you will find the information in that book to be extremely valuable to you!
