Periodontal means ‘ around the tooth’ and this disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth.
Four out of five people have periodontal disease (also
known as periodontitis and gum disease) and don’t know it! It is usually painless in the early stages.
Periodontal disease is the main reason behind tooth loss. It is a major problem as research has shown that there is a link between periodontal disease and other diseases such as stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and increased risk during pregnancy.
