Do You Know the Signs of Gum Disease? [quiz]

Gum Disease Treatment 2 at Douglas A. Callow, DDS Office in Plymouth, MI

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is surprisingly common. The Centers for Disease Control says that it afflicts nearly half of adults over the age of thirty, and 70% over the age of 65. And left untreated, its effects can be devastating. It’s the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and it has been linked to numerous systemic health problems including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Indeed, gum disease is a serious matter and everyone should be aware of the warning signs.

Take this quiz to see how much you know about gum disease. Keep in mind that early-stage disease often has no symptoms at all, so regular checkups are essential.
