It's more common than you think!
HEALTH Gum disease
Gingivitis is a very common form of gum disease that affects your gums, teeth, and overall oral health. In general, it’s caused by a buildup of plaque on the teeth, and when this plaque builds where the tooth meets the gum, and when it hardens, it causes issues ranging from sore and inflamed bleeding gums to even tooth loss.
There are multiple phases of it (the earlier phases are less severe) and it’s extremely common (even amongst celebrities). To explore more about gingivitis, how to avoid it, and learn which celebrities have suffered from it, click through the gallery.
