    Another major danger is tooth loss. Reports haves shown that one cause of chronic disease in the elderly is malnutrition. A lot of malnutrition occurs because of the lack of teeth or ability to chew, so they eat more processed foods instead of healthier fruits and vegetables. So poor gum health results in tooth loss, which can greatly affect your ability to eat healthy foods, which makes you more susceptible to disease. It's a vicious cycle.
