Gum Disease is a Common Condition with the Potential for Major Consequences

Red, puffy gums that bleed and chronic bad breath are often an indication of a serious gum problem. Gum (periodontal) disease is a condition caused by toxins from oral bacteria. These toxins destroy the bone and structures holding our teeth in place and infect gum tissue. In the early stage of gingivitis, gum tissues become inflamed and bleeds easily. No irreversible damage occurs if treated at this stage. Without treatment, gum disease develops into periodontitis and advanced periodontitis. In these stages, progressing degrees of irreversible bone loss, gum recession and tooth mobility occur. Studies have shown an increased risk of serious general health issues such as heart disease and stroke, when gum disease remains untreated.
