What is periodontal (gum) disease?
Periodontal disease is an inflammatory condition that occurs within gum tissues and other supporting structures of the teeth including the bone and ligaments. Chronic inflammation of the gums can lead to pain and sensitivity, infections, recession and in some cases tooth loss.
What are the signs of periodontal (gum) diseases?
One of the earliest indicators of gum disease is the presence of bleeding within your gums. Bleeding of the gums can occur during brushing or flossing. Over time, the gums can also begin to swell.
