Periodontal (Gum) Disease
What Is Periodontal Disease/Gum Disease?
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by the bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
There are many factors that increase the risk of developing gum disease, including: smoking, pregnancy and diabetes. It is important to visit Dr. Musto Periodontics & Dental Implants if you suspect you have gum disease, because the sooner you treat it the better.
