That Dreadful Gum Disease

There is a rampant occurrence of gum disease worldwide.
It may be suggestive of a lifestyle problem.
We tend to be too preoccupied, with what seems to be equally important, but you have to know how destructive gum disease could be to our total well being.
You may hear experts say that just because you brush and floss regularly you become less susceptible to gum disease.
And upon research I found out that it is not merely brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist regularly that saves you from the dreadful inflammation of gums and its detachment to the bones that hold the teeth.
Good and proper oral hygiene practices could spare your gums, too.
In a magazine I have read, it says, good oral hygiene when practiced properly gives back highly satisfactory results.
A friend confirmed that, too.
She had really bad case, imagine blood lubricating her oral cavity instead of just saliva and it is foul smelling, too.
It's really unsightly but I am proud to say that she is doing what she can to reverse the problem.
Socially, it has wounded her but she is starting to pull herself back together.
Gingivitis could really go out of hand with neglect.
It can cause recession of gums revealing the bones that hold the teeth in place.
Can you imagine how painful that is? It is thrice more painful than a decaying tooth.
Some people wonder why, despite their religious biannual visits to the hygienist, their gums are still red and flabby.
Gingivitis is a serious, fast-progressing and life threatening condition.
Research says that using some products could do more harm than good.
For instance, the floss - it is just a piece of thread, you might think but when used improperly - it could destroy the continuity of your gums thus causing gum recession leading to tooth mobility and worse, tooth extraction.
