Also known as gum disease or periodontitis, periodontal diseases refer to bacterial infections that cause inflammation, bleeding and swelling of the gums. This often damages the structures that give support to the teeth in the jaw bone. If left unchecked, periodontitis often causes tooth loss and other health complications. With proper treatment however, periodontitis can be treated.
Proper oral hygiene is the first step towards eliminating Periodontitis. Failure to maintain proper dental hygiene encourages harmful bacteria which causes plague and gum disease.
If you have any signs of gum disease, please book an appointment and visit Reese Dental at Lake County. Dr. Reese and his experienced team of dentists and hygienists will perform an oral examination on you and make the right diagnosis. Early detection is vital for controlling any further disease progression and preventing tooth loss.
