What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition that affects the gums and the bone that supports the teeth. It is caused by the accumulation of plaque, a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva on the teeth. When plaque is not removed, it hardens into calculus (tartar), which can only be removed by a dental professional.
Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. In the early stages, it is usually painless, which is why most people don’t know they have it. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and may even increase the risk of other systemic diseases such as stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and complications during pregnancy.

Treatment for Periodontal Disease
The treatment for periodontal disease depends on the severity of the condition. In mild cases, a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) may be sufficient to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to control bacterial infections.
In more severe cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to restore the health of the gums and teeth. Gum surgery, bone grafting, and tissue regeneration are some of the procedures that may be performed to repair the damage caused by periodontal disease.
