What Do You Mean My Gums Have A Disease?

Luckily, gum disease is entirely preventable, and in the long run treatable.

What Causes Periodontal Disease?

Gum disease isn't a disease as you immediately think of it.

It's more of a case of

lack of maintenance.

When bacteria in our mouths are combined with mucus and gunk they harden to form plaque.

When the plaque hardens it causes


characterized by red, swollen

gums that

bleed a lot.
