Gum Disease

Description

Periodontal diseases are a group of diseases that affect the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth in the jaw.

 
These are inflammatory diseases caused by infection, which is known as gingivitis when the inflammatory process only affects the gums and not the tissues that hold the tooth.
 
When the inflammatory process affects the deep periodontal tissues, deterioration occurs in the bone and ligament that support and hold the teeth.
 
With this degree of severity, the condition is known as periodontitis. If left untreated, the condition deteriorates, destroying the entire tooth support and leading to tooth loss.
