Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a serious threat to your smile. In fact, it’s the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. Left untreated, an infection in your gums affects the tissue and bone that keep your teeth in place. Not only that, but it can spread to other areas of your body – which is why medical research has linked gum disease to serious conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
