What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the gums and bones supporting the teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems. The most common symptoms of gum disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums, bad breath, and loose teeth.
