When we think about dental health, focus is likely to be on preventing cavities, caries and decayed teeth but it's important to pay attention to gums too. Gums play a major role not only in dental health, but in overall well-being of a person. Gingival disease begins with bacterial growth in the mouth and may end- if not properly treated-with tooth loss due to destruction of the surrounding tissue.
