Gum disease is a separation of the gums away from the teeth allowing infection to damage the bone and supporting tissues of the tooth, which can lead to tooth loss.

side effects of gum disease - loss of teeth, discomfort in the mouth, bad breath, bleeding of the gums.

Gum disease can also cause heart disease, or immune system deficiencies.

consult your dentist if you have gum disease.

some side effects of gum disease are bad breath, discolorations of the teeth and surrounding tissues and gum bleeding.

  • more bacteria in the mouth.
  • may cause heart related issues.
  • bad breath.
  • you may have to loose tooth.
