Many people are unaware that they have gum disease
Updated: 11/2/2011 7:00:06 PM

The best way to ensure that a person is protected against gum disease is by visiting the dentist regularly, brushing teeth twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash.  According to dental experts from mouthwash and toothpaste company Eludril and Elgydium, many people are unaware that they are at risk of gum disease and the other health concerns that are associated with it. It recently released a report explaining which types of people have a higher chance of developing this condition and should consider speaking to their dental health professional about this concern. 

The experts say that smokers, women going through hormonal changes (such as pregnant women), people with diabetes or cancer and people on medications that may reduce saliva production all have an increased risk of gum disease. They added that many people ignore the symptoms of the disease.

"Bleeding gums are an obvious symptom but some people still persist in turning a blind eye to the problem: some because they mistakenly regard it as a ‘normal’ occasional occurrence; others because there is no immediate pain, merely a few flecks of blood," according to the statement released by the company.
