Gum disease can have a significant impact on your health. Besides leading to tooth decay and gum infection, gum disease is associated with a number of health conditions including heart disease and some forms of cancer. A very common cause of gum disease is bacteria under the gum line which causes gum infection and weakens the attachment between the tooth and the gum, making the tooth vulnerable to infection and decay.
