Gum disease is a progressive infection caused by built-up bacterial plaque and tartar. In most cases, it begins as gingivitis, which consists of inflammation and irritation of the gums. At this stage, gum disease is easy to treat with good oral hygiene. Our team will also perform a deep cleaning (called scaling and root planing) to remove the built-up plaque and tartar.
If left untreated, gingivitis can progress into its advanced stage, called periodontitis. Periodontitis can result in receding gums and permanent damage to the tissues that support your teeth. Severe periodontitis can also lead to tooth loss. Advanced gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adult patients.
