Periodontal Disease is the progression of Gum Disease. The affects are not fully reversible. Periodontitis is common but largely preventable, usually the result of poor oral hygiene. Brushing effectively twice a day, flossing daily and regular dental check ups can greatly reduce your chance of developing periodontitis.
Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports the teeth. It can cause tooth loss or worse an increased risk of other serious health problems.
