  1. Myth 1: I'll eventually get gum disease, since it's a natural part of aging.
    Fact: Gum disease is not an inevitable effect of aging. Gum disease is caused by a build up of dental plaque -- and that can happen to seniors and teens alike. Gum disease is more common in seniors who face changes such as receding gums and a faster build up of plaque.
    Myth 2: Gum disease isn't that serious and will go away on its own.
    Fact: Gum disease develops slowly over time and may not show symptoms along the way. But that doesn't make it any less serious for seniors.
    Myth 3: I'll spot the signs of gum disease before it gets too severe.
    Fact: Gum disease isn't easy to detect, especially early on. In fact, many seniors don't know that they have periodontal disease because it has been developing slowly over time. Hence, it is very important to visit your dentist if you feel any of the symptoms of gum problems instead or avoiding it. There are clinics in India which are providing great dental treatments and patients come from abroad to get their treatment done. They have also shared their reviews on the same.
