Do you ever think about what could be lurking beneath your gums? Do you know that gum disease symptoms are hard to spot?

Gum disease is infection below the gumline around a tooth’s roots. It can be caused by poor brushing and flossing habits, but other factors can increase your risk of developing gum disease, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic dry mouth (caused by radiation treatment for cancer as well as many medications)
