What Is Gum Disease?
Gum, or periodontal, disease is an oral infection that can destroy your smile over time. It is caused by an overgrowth of the bacteria that live in your mouth. Normally, brushing and flossing remove the plaque and bacteria on and between your teeth; but when you neglect proper hygiene, the bacterial population grows and infects the periodontal tissue.
