Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is caused by bacteria in plaque. If not consistently removed, this bacteria builds up, infecting your teeth, gums, lower gum tissue and eventually the bone that supports your teeth - a common cause of tooth loss. This disease has three stages of progression: gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis; the longer the disease has to advance, the more damage it causes. Fear not, DDS Associates is here to help. With advancements in detection and treatment, we can discover periodontal disease early and begin treatment before complicated issues arise.
Gum disease is directly connected to other health problems. If not treated properly, it can lead to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and pregnancy complications.
