Periodontal disease

Periodontal disease is the medical term that describes gum disease.  It is a disease that starts with inflammation of the gums called gingivitis.  As periodontal disease progresses and gets worse, it can lead to the loss of teeth and the loss of bone.  It is usually caused by the buildup of bacteria, tartar and plaque in, and around the teeth and gums. Click here to read more about periodontal disease.

Periodontal deep cleaning
