Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease is a contagious, chronic bacterial infection that affects the gum tissue, bone and attachment fibres that support the teeth and hold them in place. Periodontal disease starts slowly without any pain and may not be apparent until there are serious side effects. This disease can also negatively impact a persons overall health. Many chronic illnesses (diabetes, heart disease, alzheimers) are linked to periodontal disease.
