What is Periodontal Disease

Are you experiencing bleeding gums when brushing or flossing? Do you notice redness, swelling or bad breath? Do you feel some of your teeth are loose? All of these are signs and symptoms of periodontal disease, which are infections of the gum. If left untreated, periodontal disease will gradually destroy the supporting gum tissue and bone of your natural teeth. This will lead to looseness of teeth and eventual tooth loss. Healthy gums and healthy teeth should not bleed when brushing or flossing!
