Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a bacterial infection of the gums, bones, and ligaments in the mouth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to serious complications. Millions of American adults will be affected by periodontal disease at some point during their lifetimes, but many will never even realize they have it.
In its earliest stages, periodontal disease does not exhibit many outward symptoms, causing its development to often go unnoticed. Patients with gingivitis have reddened, swollen gums that bleed easily. Many times, there is no physical discomfort associated with these symptoms.
