Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection that affects the gums and bone that support the teeth. It is linked to other systemic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Because gum disease can lead to painful abscess and tooth loss, your dental professional will perform a thorough exam, in order to catch this disease in its earliest stages. Gum disease leads to bone loss around the teeth and creates pockets that may be difficult for you to easily access for cleaning at home. Your team will discuss if a periodontal deep cleaning is necessary to help control this chronic disease process.
