Periodontal (gum) disease descirbes inflammation of the gums and of the supporting bone that holds the teeth in the jaws. Periodontal disease affects around 20 per cent of adults and is the most common cause of tooth loss. Periodontics is a stream of dentistry that refers to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the supporting structures of teeth. We find that the signs of periodontal disease are subtle and often not noticeable until the disease is quite advanced. These signs and symptoms include include:
- Bad breath
- Inflammed gums
- Bleeding gums
- Pain when chewing
- Loose teeth
- Sensitive teeth
