The best way to help prevent periodontitis is to brush and floss your teeth daily and to see your dentist regularly for professional teeth and cleaning and examination.
If left untreated, periodontal disease can result in severe problems such as tooth loss, bleeding gums, receding gums and bad breath. Gum disease is the body’s inflammatory response to bacteria in your mouth. Periodontitis can strike anyone at any age at anytime. Like more severe periodontitis, gingivitis is a serious infection that requires attention. The good news is that periodontal disease is treatable with professional periodontal treatment and good oral hygiene.
