Share of Cost on Gum Disease Not to be Taken Lightly
Gum disease develops slowly over time and does not always show symptoms along the way. But that does not make it any less serious for seniors. In addition gum disease will not resolve by itself. What starts with a little redness of the gums and bleeding can develop into pockets around the base of the teeth, which eventually become loose and fall out. The only way to remove plaque deep under the gums is with regular dental cleanings.
