Periodontal and Gum Disease (Periodontics)

Gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss and is experienced by an estimated 80% of people at some point in their life. When diagnosed in its early stages, gum disease can be treated early and your teeth can be saved from being removed.

Most people will suffer from gum disease at some stage in their life.

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. The signs and symptoms of this are red gums, inflamed gums, bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth.

If gingivitis is left untreated it will progress to more serious stages of periodontal disease which can result in gum and bone loss. This means the tooth no longer has a strong support structure and will become wobbly and may have to be extracted.
