Many adults suffer from some form of gum disease, or periodontitis. In fact, you might be suffering from the early stages without even knowing it! You can develop gum disease for many reasons. You might not be keeping up with your daily dental hygiene routine. You may be a smoker. You might have other health complications or a hereditary disposition.
