What Periodontal Disease Does
Gingivitis the most common periodontal disease is the mildest for. It caused gums to become slightly swollen and they may bleed easily. It’s often caused by inadequate hygiene and can be reversed. However, if a patient doesn’t see out treatment, the gum disease can progress into full periodontitis.
Advancing periodontitis, caused by bacterial infections below the gum line, can lead to the body attempting to combat the infection by breaking down the affected tissues. This includes gum, teeth, and bone. Abscesses can lead to the further periodontal disease. If not treated, this gum disease can result in loss of teeth, necrosis, bone loss an even endanger your overall health.
Don’t put off seeking treatment.
