Periodontal (gum) Disease

Periodontal disease is a disease that affects the tissues that support the teeth. The support system including the gum, bone and associated structures are infected by the plaque/tartar build-up around the teeth leading to their breakdown. The severity of the disease can be affected by the type of bacteria, the response of the individual and other underlying conditions such as diabetes or smoking.
