    Re: Periodontal Disease

    Causes:
    When the person has already "gingivitis" that is not treated, it can advance to "periodontitis" which means inflammation around the tooth.Gums pull away from the teth and form spaces called pocketsbecomes infected.


    Symptoms:
    •Bad breath that
    won’t go away
    •Red or swollen gums
    •Tender or bleeding gums
    •Painful chewing
    •Loose teeth
    •Sensitive teeth
    •Receding gums or
    longer appearing teeth


    Treatment:
    First, part of the treatment is to control the infection. The
    number and types of treatment
    will vary, depending on the
    extent of the gum disease.
    Second, any type of treatment requires the patient keep up good daily care at home,
    and lastly the doctor/dentist would also suggest changing certain behaviors, such as quitting smoking.

    Hope this helps.
