Gum Disease

December 14, 2021
  • Gum (periodontal) disease is an inflammatory disease that affects the hard and soft structures that support the teeth.
  • Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss.
  • Tooth loss may affect the ability to chew food and can get worse with the number and type of missing teeth—affecting a person’s diet quality.
  • Diabetes, tobacco use, a weakened immune system, and poor oral hygiene all increase a person’s risk for gum disease.
  • Mild gum disease can be controlled and treated with good oral hygiene and regular professional cleaning. More severe forms can also be treated successfully with consultation and treatment.
  • Nearly half (46%) of all adults aged 30 years or older show signs of gum disease; severe gum disease affects about 9% of adults.
