Overview

Aside from being the number one cause of tooth loss, can gum disease kill you? Ongoing research continues to point to the likelihood of a connection between gum disease and other serious diseases such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, lung infections and low birth weight, pre-term babies. As research continues, it is likely that even more connections will be discovered.

What You Should Know about Gum Disease is truly the layman's guide to fighting gum disease. Written in easy to understand language, it explains in detail what every human being with gum tissue (everyone) should know. This guide goes beyond mere brushing and flossing and discusses tools, concepts, techniques and knowledge that will help you to defeat gum disease or prevent it from visiting your mouth in the first place.

The author draws upon and shares personal experiences and success in fighting gum disease as well as the struggle to understand what affects so many people today. This is a book written by a layman for the benefit of non professionals as well as professionals around the world.

Gum disease, a plague that has haunted mankind for thousands of years, is still with us today. It doesn't show any signs of leaving. Low estimates are that forty percent of the human population has some form of gum disease right now. Higher estimates put that number at eighty percent.

A popular clinic's website indicates that as many as ninety-five percent of the adult population will have some form of gum disease by age sixty-five. Yet, it has also been found in young children. With these odds, chances are high that What You Should Know about Gum Disease will serve you well.

You do not haveto accept gumdisease as an inevitable consequence of aging. Learn what you can do, starting today, to begin fighting an existing case of gum disease or preventing gum disease from visiting your mouth in the first place.

If four to eight out of every ten people have some form of gum disease, it is possible that you or someone in your family is one of them. This book promises to provide information that your dentist either did not know or did not have the time to tell you about. In fact, many dentists may learn a few things about gum disease and fighting it that they were previously unaware of.

Endorsed by a periodontist, a dentist, two physicians and one hygienist, What You Should Know about Gum Disease is ever respectful to the dental profession. It always refers the patient back to the doctor and encourages understanding, communication and compliance between them.

In fact, many dentists may want this book in their waiting room to enhance patient education. They may wish to give this book to every new patient who walks through the door to help patients better understand what gum disease is and what they can do about it at home. This will help initiate discussion and a higher degree and willingness for compliance with the doctor's home care plan. It can not get much better than this for the concerned doctor or the patient!

Even so, What You Should Know about Gum Disease remains layman friendly both in terminology and readability. This is a book that is a helpful companion to the individual. This book is your friend. It is a lifetime companion that you and everyone else should want on the bookshelf. It is truly your guide to fighting gum disease.
