Without treatment, periodontal disease (also called gum disease) can negatively affect dental health. You could lose teeth when gum disease is allowed to wreak havoc to the supporting structures which hold your teeth in place. Patients who suffer from gum disease see Dr. Yolanda Cintron and the team at Go Natural Dentistry.
Gum disease happens when bacteria in your mouth, along the gum line, causes your gums to become inflamed. This inflammation, if allowed to progress, can affect your bone structure which supports your teeth. Gum disease is caused by the bacteria present in plaque build-up. Plaque is a sticky, colorless film that is constantly building on your teeth. It is removed through your daily dental hygiene regimen (brushing, flossing, rinsing). If allowed to build up, the bacteria will affect your gums and teeth and the supporting gum tissue and bone. Over time it can lead to loose teeth or teeth which fall out or have to be extracted by your dentist. Let’s look at the progression of gum disease.
