The Ultimate Goal to Have Healthy Gums
Periodontics addresses the health of your gums and the tissues of the jaw, including the bone that holds and supports your teeth.
What is Gingivitis?
Gingivitis is a common and mild form of gum disease (periodontal disease) that causes irritation, redness and swelling (inflammation) of your gingiva, the part of your gum around the base of your teeth. Gingivitis is a non-destructive type of periodontal disease, but untreated gingivitis can lead to much more serious gum disease called periodontitis and tooth loss. Because Gingivitis is a bacterial infection, it causes an inflammatory response of your immune system which can contribute to other systemic problems. Areas of your health potentially impacted by this type of inflammation are diabetes, coronary artery disease, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and more.
