No one is immune to periodontal disease.
People usually don’t show signs of gum disease until they’re in their thirties or forties. Men develop it more often than women. Teenagers rarely develop periodontitis, but they can develop gingivitis if their oral hygiene is poor.
Poor nutrition, substance abuse and other unhealthy habits contribute to the overall risk of gum disease as do poor-fitting dental restorations.
