What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, which is otherwise known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the gum tissue. Gingivitis is the milder form of gum disease. It has symptoms like red, swollen gums, gums that bleed during brushing, and bad breath. If gingivitis worsens, it develops into periodontitis, the advanced form of gum disease. Periodontitis is characterized by irreversible damage to the gums and the bones that supports the teeth. It may cause the teeth to become loose or even fall out altogether.

In addition to wrecking an individual’s oral health, gum disease can also have systemic health consequences. Various studies have found a link between it and heart disease, stroke, dementia, and other serious conditions.
