Periodontal Disease Treatment (Gum Disease)
Gum or periodontal disease if not treated may lead to teeth loss and gum destruction. It is a condition, which occurs as a result of bacterial growth in the mouth. Periodontitis is the primary reason of tooth loss among adults.
Except for bad breath and gums that bleed, there are very few early warning signals. The disease advances silently, often without pain, and before you know it, you are losing your teeth and you don’t know why.
Gum disease also has linkage with stroke, heart disease, and diabetes – even an increased risk for pregnant women. When your gums become diseased, your entire immune system is weakened.
