You may have heard periodontal disease referred to as gum disease or gingivitis. Periodontal disease is the inflammation and infection of your gums. This is linked with many undesirable traits, such as swollen and red gums, persistent bleeding, chronic bad breath, and more. If left untreated, it can lead to gum recession and tooth loss.

Periodontal disease may also increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
Maintaining your gum health is vital to your overall health. For more information regarding your gum health, please contact our office, or schedule a visit to see us!
