What You Should Know About Gum Disease

What You Should Know About Gum Disease is a book that I published in 2008.   It is over 200 pages.   However, the first 4 chapters will give you the bulk of the information that I think you need and should definitely read.

I first became interested in this topic somewhere around 2005 or 2006 when my dentist and hygienist suggested that I needed an expensive a possibly painful treatment (after the anesthetic wore off) treatment called a Scaling and Root Planing or SRP  treatment.

I sure didn't like the sound of that.   My dentist actually told me that it was the only thing that would help.   I decided that I needed to test that theory. 

It took some trial and error but I found something that really worked.   I found other things that helped, but there was one thing in particular that REALLY helped. 

Dentist Visibly Surprised

My dentist was quite surprised.  She seemed to have trouble believing the change in my periodontal (gum) health.   She eventually said, "Ok, whatever you are doing, keep it up.  You don't need that treatment any longer."     I was, of course, delighted.

Three out of Every For People Have Gum Disease

This is what many dental professionals say.  I thought a book like mine would be very valuable to people.   I've discovered that most people are unwilling to consider the possibility that they have gum disease.  Some won't even believe it, or they were not told, when they lose teeth and need dentures and / or implants.

You see, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.   There is nothing else that comes close.   Yet, people will lose some their teeth and still not realize they have it.   That is truly a tragedy.

Education Is The Key

If what many dentists say is true and three out of every four people really do have gum disease, what are the odds that you or someone you love has this problem.    You see, this book has great value for you and your family.   Every family should have a copy of this book, in my opinion.   Yes, I am the author, but it doesn't change reality.     With so many people facing this problem and still unaware, it seems to me this book could really help a lot of people.  That includes possibly yourself and those whom you love!
