Periodontal (gum) disease, is a degenerative dental condition caused by bacteria in your mouth. These bacteria cause an infection which gradually worsens, eventually leading to gum recession, tooth loss and bone loss if not treated. Gum disease also has a significant impact on your overall health, and it has been linked to a number of more serious medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and pregnancy complications.
Common signs of periodontal disease include:
- Red, swollen or tender gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Loose teeth
- Gum recession
- Pain when chewing
- Persistent bad breath
