What causes periodontal disease?

What causes periodontal disease, or  what is more commonly referred to as Gum Disease is an infection in the gums from bacteria. The most common ailments include bleeding gums that are red and puffy during flossing or brushing.

Periodontal disease, if left unchecked can destroy the bones that support the teeth, leading to loss of teeth and extensive gum bleeding. Unfortunately, periodontal disease can go left unchecked for years without pain and without detection. Treatment is the best option to treat periodontal disease. Regular office visits to Dobson Ranch Dental Care can help alleviate the burden of developing periodontal disease. Early detection is essential in the treatment in tooth loss and disfiguration.
