Periodontal Gum Disease (also known as gum disease or periodontitis) is a common inflammatory condition that affects the surrounding and supporting soft tissues of your tooth, when leave untreated, the gum disease starts affecting your jawbone as an advanced staged of gum disease.
The word “Periodontal” or in other words – around the tooth, is most often preceded by gingivitis which is a bacterial infection of the gum tissue. This bacterial infection affects your gums when the toxins contained in plaque begin to irritate and inflame the gum tissues. When the bacteria colonizes into your gum pockets between your teeth, it becomes very difficult to treat. Periodontal disease is a progressive condition that eventually leads to the destruction of the connective tissue and jawbone. If left untreated, it can use loosen, shifting, and eventually loss of teeth.
