What is “Periodontitis” or “Periodontal disease” ?
In the following paragraphs the basic processes and possible treatment options for regaining optimal gum health will be provided. More detailed information will be provided during treatment by your clinician.
Periodontitis, Pyorrhoea (pronounced pie-re-ahh), Periodontal Disease or Gum Disease all refer to the same ailment. A gum infection caused by various bacteria found in your dental plaque. Periodontitis refers to “a deep bacterial infection of the gums”. This infection may lead to the progressive loss of attachment and support from the teeth. Without treatment this
eventually can lead to a person becoming “long in the tooth” and – if left untreated – can eventually cause the teeth to loosen, drift and fall out.
