The Dangers of Gum Disease
When healthy, your bone and gum tissue fit snuggly around your teeth like a turtleneck. When you have periodontal disease, the supporting tissue and bone is destroyed forming pockets around the teeth. Over time, bacteria can accumulate and break the gum seal providing a pathway for bacteria to reach and destroy the bone supporting your teeth. Eventually, if a patient doesn’t receive gum disease treatment too much bone is lost which will, in turn, lead to tooth loss.
