Periodontics, Reading (Gum Disease)
Periodontal disease does not just affect the gums; it also damages the bone tissue and ligaments surrounding the gums. If the harmful bacteria and plaque is not removed from our teeth our bodies naturally start to fight the bacteria but this subsequently means that our immune systems and the bacterial infection start to break down our bone tissue and ligaments.
Untreated gum disease
If gum disease is left untreated the teeth can eventually come loose and fall out, a health problem that is the main cause of tooth loss in adults across the UK. Periodontal disease is not curable, but treatment and proper management can prevent further harm. Treatment could effectively prevent you from losing your natural teeth.
