Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is an inflammatory bacterial infection in the gums. The symptoms may be small at first, like redness or soreness, but can quickly develop into bleeding and pain if left untreated. The jawbone may begin to deteriorate as a result, shifting teeth or, in extreme cases, causing tooth loss entirely. With periodontal disease on the rise, it’s important that you get checked routinely by Dr. Hazen, to keep the symptoms of periodontal disease at bay.
