You may have heard periodontal disease referred to as gum disease or gingivitis.

Periodontal disease is the inflammation and infection of your gums.

This is linked with many undesireable traits, such as swollen and red gums,

Persistent bleeding, chronic bad breath, and more.

If left untreated, it can lead to gum recession and tooth loss.

Peridontal disease may also increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. 

Maintaining your gum health is vital to your overall health.
