About Periodontal Disease



Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the gums and supporting structures around the teeth. It is caused by the buildup of bacterial plaque on the teeth and gums, which can lead to inflammation and infection. 

Gingivitis – Early Stage of Gum Disease

Characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, where the gums start to recede from the teeth, creating pockets where bacteria can thrive. The body's immune system responds to the infection, leading to the breakdown of the bone and tissue that support the teeth. This can result in tooth loss and other serious health complications. 

Periodontitis – Advanced Stages of Gum Disease

Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. If left untreated, periodontitis can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems. 

Treatment may involve deep cleanings, medication, surgery and lifestyle changes to improve oral hygiene
