Periodontal gum disease is a common oral condition that affects over 60 million Americans and is typically caused by a lack of proper dental care and poor oral hygiene. When patients fail to properly clean their smile, bacteria, plaque, acid and tartar can build up in the mouth, causing the gums to become inflamed and irritated. As the irritation is left untreated, it actually begins to cause damage to the gums, bone and supporting tissues in the mouth. Once the condition has advanced past gingivitis (the first stage of periodontal disease) it cannot be cured, symptoms will have to be managed for the rest of your life.
Left untreated, periodontal gum disease can actually lead to loose teeth, tooth shifting, teeth misalignment and even tooth loss. We recommend treating periodontal gum disease as soon as possible to reduce your risk of these complications and avoid dealing with the condition for the rest of your life.
