What Have You Heard About Gum Disease? Debunking the Myths
If you haven't heard about gum disease from your dentist, you've probably seen it on information chats at the dental clinic. It is a common diagnosis in dental health, but many people fear and even spread false information about it. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, comes about when your gum tissues become inflamed due to an infection. The result is pain, soreness and bleeding in the gums. Sometimes you may feel like your teeth want to come out, and that's because your gums have started to recede.
