A Guide To Periodontal Gum Disease
Do you suffer from chronic bad breath? Notice your gums are inflamed, irritated or bleeding? You may be suffering from a condition known as periodontal “gum” disease.
What is Periodontal Gum Disease?
Periodontal gum disease is an extremely common dental condition which affects almost half of the American adult population. Periodontal disease is caused when a patient neglects their oral health, leading to a buildup of bacteria, acid, plaque and toxins in the mouth. Eventually inflammation and infection of the gums occurs, causing them to recede and form pockets, additionally causing the teeth to become loose. As patients continue to neglect periodontal gum disease, the gums, bones and even teeth can be affected, resulting in receding gums, bone loss and even tooth loss. During the early stage of periodontal disease (gingivitis) the condition can actually be completely reversed and cured, we recommend seeking treatment once you notice any symptoms.
