Periodontal disease, commonly called gum disease, is an infection of the gums and bone caused by bacteria under the gum line. Periodontitis starts as bleeding and tender gums, while brushing and can advance to the loosening or eventual loss of teeth.
Periodontitis is diagnosed by a complete periodontal probing examination and x-rays to determine bone loss. Once it is established that a person has periodontal bone loss, it is extremely important that they maintain regular and more frequent professional dental cleanings to remove bacteria that has accumulated below the gum line to prevent infection of the bone. The reason is because infection causes the loss of the bone surrounding the teeth, and is near impossible to regain bone once it is gone.
Periodontitis is not reversible, but can be maintained by frequent cleanings, exams, and great home care.
