Caries / Decay / Cavities

Gum Disease

  • Gum (Periodontal) disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.
  • It begins as gingivitis (gum inflammation caused by dental plaque), which can be easily treated in early stages which is why frequent dental visits are important.
  • If left untreated, gingivitis may graduate to periodontitis, a more serious stage of the infection that destroys tooth-supporting tissue including bone. Unlike gingivitis, this damage is permanent.
