Gum Disease


What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection involving the gums and sometimes the bone that surrounds a tooth. Gum diseases can affect one tooth or many teeth, and they range from gum irritation (gingivitis) to severe infection (periodontitis). It is important to pay special attention to your gums because if you're not taking care of your gums, you're not taking care of your mouth.
