Gum disease is the swelling, pain or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth.
Gingivitis & periodontal disease are two types of gum disease.Introduction
Gingivitis means inflammation of the gums while Periodontitis means inflammation around the tooth.
Both are a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue & bone that supports the tooth.
These include the gums, the cementum that covers the root and the alveolar bone.
In the earliest stage of periodontal disease the infection affects only the gums.
Diseases are the causal cause of tooth loss in adults & children.What Is Periodontal Disease?
