What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease (gum disease) take on many different forms but are usually a result of a coalescence of bacterial plaque biofilm accumulation of the gingiva (gum) and teeth, combined with host immuno-inflammatory mechanisms and other risk factors which lead to the destruction of the supporting bone around natural teeth. It is important to note that periodontal disease is usually painless and can go undetected until it's too late. If left untreated, periodontal disease can destroy the bone and soft tissue surrounding the teeth.
