  1. I think the official stats are that perhaps as many as 3 out of every 4 people have either gingivitis or gum disease right now. If true, it is very sad.

    I remember reading on the Mayo Clinic’s website once that 95% of people over the age of 65 have it as well.

    If you know a hygienist, she will be able to tell you how many of her patients have it and if people knew the number, they would be shocked!
