After tooth decay, gum disease is the most common ailment to affect people, with approximately 80% of all adults believed to suffer from some form or other. Contrary to popular belief, gum disease does not ultimately lead to tooth loss. With early diagnosis and treatment, it is possible to control gum disease and maintain healthy teeth for a lifetime.
