Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth. The bacteria can cause an infection of the gums and leads bleeding and swelling and can eventually destroy the supporting bone around the teeth.
How Do You Prevent Periodontal Disease?
As the disease advances the teeth become loose and maybe lost. Periodontal disease may be prevented by proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
