Periodontitis, also known as Periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums and/or bone that surrounds the tooth. Generally, the disease is painless and most patients are not aware they have a problem until examined by a dentist, however it can be serious and could lead to tooth loosen or lose.
Periodontal disease is preventable through regular brushing, flossing, and healthy oral care habits. However, if you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, treatment may be required.
There are many methods of treatment. Less invasive options may include scaling. root planing, antibiotics. Advanced periodontitis may require surgery.
