You’re probably not surprised since you’ve seen this on box but have you really though about it?
Gum disease can cause anything from redness and over sensitive gum tissue to the more dangerous phase like withdrawal of gum tissue which eventually leads to tooth loss. In the past red necks have been mocked to have gum disease unlike city folks, but now times are changing. The condition is becoming more wide spread as the number one cause for it is tobacco. No, I’m not talking about Snus. Regular smokers are much more and they have been poisoning their gum tissue for ages. Their numbers are quickly decreasing because of increased cost of smoking and lack of places to do it. Snus use however is on the rise and it may be just the thing to revive the rise of gum disease.
As far as tooth loss. We all know the physical and psychological effects of tooth loss. It’s just one of those things you never wish for anyone.
