The Most Common Reason for Missing Teeth
Many people believe tooth loss is mostly due to decay. But the main cause is periodontal (gum) disease. Often, the symptom of bleeding gums is present while brushing or flossing. But sometimes there are no signs of the condition until it is chronic and advanced. It is important to receive treatment in the early stages of the infection. But even if you've already been told you need gum surgery, it's possible that nonsurgical approaches will take care of the problem.
