Gum disease is kind of like someone walking up behind you and tapping your shoulder. You may not know it’s there until it’s too late. You often will not see any signs of gum disease until it has significantly progressed.

And, unlike the person tapping your shoulder who might turn out to be a friend, you never want to meet up with gum disease. It can damage your gums and teeth and destroy your smile!
