Periodontal disease is more common than you might think. At Rotem Dental Care in Toms River, we see patients with gum disease every day. Some patients aren’t even aware they have it until it’s been diagosed. Fortunately, it is a treatable condition.
Periodontal disease, more commonly called gum disease, is an inflammation or infection of the gums. Periodontal disease can be very painful in some extreme conditions, and can limit your ability to eat normally. In some cases, periodontal disease can affect your smile, and can create cosmetic concerns.
If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause irreversible damage such as tooth loss. When caught early and treated, it can be managed and cured. As always, the best policy is prevention: practicing good dental hygiene to keep periodontal disease at bay.
