Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone tissue that supports your teeth. Unfortunately, an increasing number of people are affected by gum disease, which can take its toll long before you know it’s present. Protecting yourself against gum disease is more important than ever because we’ve recently learned that periodontal disease is not just an oral health concern. Emerging studies indicate that chronic inflammation of the mouth can contribute to a number of serious health problems like heart disease, diabetes, strokes, respiratory disease, and pregnancy complications.
