What Is Gum Disease?
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissue surrounding your teeth. This can include your gums, bones, and ligaments. Gum disease is also the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease symptoms are generally not painful, lots of folks are unaware that they have the disease. It is also possible to develop gum disease without the typical warning signs.
For this reason, it's always important to have regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations. Available treatment methods will depend on the particular type of disease and your condition's progression. Proper dental care at home is also a valuable tool to keep periodontal disease from becoming more serious or recurring.
