Gum disease is an infection of the gums that occurs as plaque builds up along the gumline. Bacteria works down under the gums and causes damage to the tissues below the surface. At first, the infection will be undetectable to you. If left unchecked, gum disease will lead to the weakening of your bone structures and the loss of teeth. In fact, gum disease is the number one cause of lost adult teeth.
