Answer: This may surprise you...gums disease is the primary cause of adult tooth loss. And you can have gum disease like perodontitis and gingivitis without any noticeable symtoms. Gum disease  like periodontitis not only leads to tooth loss, but also bone loss, and is a source of infection for the entire body!
