Periodontics is the treatment of gum diseases. Gum diseases are chronic bacterial infections that slowly attack and destroy the gums and supporting bone that hold your teeth in place. Untreated, periodontal disease can result in tooth loss. In the first stage of the disease (gingivitis), gums are red, swollen and bleed easily but with proper home care and professional treatment, gingivitis is reversible.

Untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontal disease. Plaque spreads into the gum line and causes infection and eventually, the gum tissue and supporting bone is broken down and destroyed. Teeth become loose or are lost. Unfortunately, gingivitis and periodontitis are fairly common. Approximately 50% of adults have gingivitis and 30% have periodontitis.

Periodontal disease is mainly caused by bacterial plaque. Plaque is the sticky, colorless substance that forms on your teeth. Other factors that also affect gum health include:

  • Smoking
  • Poor nutrition
  • Stress
  • Genetics
  • Medications
  • Diabetes

What are the dangers of periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. More importantly, the infection releases toxins into the bloodstream leading to serious health risks:

  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Spontaneous preterm births
