Periodontal or gum disease is a bacterial infection of the tissues and bone that support your teeth, including the jawbone and periodontal ligaments. It's a quite advanced stage of infection in your gums. If detected while still in the stage known as gingivitis, it can be reversed with a rigorous oral care routine. If not treated, periodontitis can cause tooth loss among adults. To maintain your smile, it is essential to seek out treatment for gum disease.
The effects of periodontitis start with the gums' soreness and minor bleeding and eventually lead to infections, tooth loss, and a decline in overall general health. Periodontal diseases should be taken seriously and treated at the earliest. Scaling and root planing and gum flap surgery were the only major treatments in the past.
