Many adults suffer from gum disease because of tartar accumulation on their teeth. Tartar contains harmful bacteria that spread under the gums, causing swelling and infection.
The most common type of gum disease is gingivitis. When left untreated, it can develop into periodontitis, a much more serious problem that can lead to tooth loss.
