Most people recognize when they have a major problem with their physical health, but unfortunately don't recognize that they have oral health (gum disease) until its well advanced, or even too late. This is often because many people are reluctant to see a dentist until they are suffering with severe discomfort or pain.
You might be surprised to learn that 80% of North Americans are living with chronic gum disease, while most have absolutely no idea that its happening. Its not that they don't brush or never visit the dentist, but tooth & gum infections are generally painless until they reach an advanced stage.
1) Chronic Gum Disease (vertical disease) - like most other diseases, people with a chronic illness just learn to tolerate the discomfort and live with it, either because they don't know how to fix the problem, its not worth the time & energy, or they've been given prescribed medication to alleviate the symptoms without dealing with the root cause.
2) Acute Gum Disease (horizontal disease) - acute illness makes people bedridden (horizontal) so they MUST deal with the sickness, and although gum disease may not necessarily put someone on their back, when you experience dental pain, all you want to do is deal with it.
In reality, there are dozens of gum-related diseases that can result in serious problems and further health issues such as: broken & chipped teeth, toothaches, cavities, crooked teeth, dental abscess, dry mouth, gingivitis, oral herpes, oral cancer, periodontitis, trench mouth, tender inflamed bleeding gums, gum pockets, loose or shifting teeth, sensitive teeth, bad breath, tartar and bruxism. If left alone, these infections can eventually destroy the teeth, gums and jawbone.
