What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease, is the inflammation of gums occurring as a result of chronic infection. It is a serious oral condition that is found in a large chunk of Americans, particularly the older generation. While it is a reversible disease, it can cause bone loss around the teeth and if untreated, lead to loss of teeth.

Periodontal Disease Symptoms

The early stage is known as gingivitis and can be taken care at home of by maintaining good oral hygiene. If it is left untreated, it progresses to periodontal disease which is the more severe form.
