GUM DISEASE : Periodontal Disease
PERIODONTAL DISEASE IS AN OFTEN OVERLOOKED CONDITION THAT AFFECTS THE JAW BONE AND GUMS
Periodontal disease is one of the main causes of tooth loss.
High levels of bacteria in the mouth, left over time, can begin to infect and reduce the amount of jaw bone support around your teeth.
Initially this can present as swollen red gums and bleeding (gingivitis) leading to bone loss, wobbly teeth and can eventually tooth loss. Daily high quality oral hygiene, coupled with regular visits to the dentist and hygienist, can reduce the bacteria numbers slowing this process down, allowing patients to keep their teeth longer.
