Irish Gum Disease Pamphlet Revealed

I came across this pamphlet on gum disease from Ireland.

Here are some interesting differences:

In the Irish 'leaflet' (which is what they refer to it as) they say that gum disease afflicts about 4 out of every 5 people worldwide.     That's about 80%.

In the United States you hear various numbers with 3 out of every 4 or about 75% being the most common statement.

In either case, and regardless of which statistic is more accurate, gum disease is a serious threat to both dental health and the body's health.  So many people have gum disease and don't know it, that it is truly a shame.

If you asked most people, they would say they don't have gum disease.  Yet, in Ireland dental professionals are saying 80% of people do!    In the US, it is commonly stated as somewhere between 40 and 75% - most commonly 75%.

It makes no difference if it is 4 out of every 5 or 3 out of every 4 people - it is a LOT of people.  Even if it is as low as 40% or 4 out of every 10 people, that is still a lot! 

If you are reading this, I hope you are inspired to learn more about gum disease.   Read about how it is  threat to your health and  your family's health.   Learn everything you can about preventing it or mitigating it once you realize you have it.

Of course, I can only speak in general terms here.  Specific questions about your own unique situation should be addressed by your dentist.  

This is such a serious problem and so many people have underestimated it.   Don't be one of them.
