What is Gum Disease?
Periodontitis, also known as gum disease, affects nearly half of all adults. The first symptoms you might see are inflamed and swollen gums. Left untreated, the symptoms can become more serious. Periodontitis is caused by long-term exposure to tartar, bacteria and plaque. We strongly recommend receiving treatment for periodontitis during this time, as the condition will worsen if left untreated.
What Happens When You Have Gum Disease?
Eventually, your gums will pull away from the teeth. This creates spaces known as pockets. These spaces can become infected which allows the condition to spread throughout the mouth and do serious damage including bone deterioration and tooth loss.
