Periodontics Specialist Selsdon
Periodontics Specialist Selsdon, Periodontitis or Periodontal Disease is an inflammation of the gum, i.e. the tissue holding the tooth. Periodontitis is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Typically if this is left untreated, it will lead to bad breath, but the worst-case scenario is tooth loss. Due to the bacteria that is contained in the plaque on the surface of the tooth, the gums may become inflamed.
If Periodontitis is left untreated, it can affect many areas, including the gums and bones. A pocket can form between the root of the tooth and the gum where bacteria can easily escalate, and calculus develop. This issue is often frequently labelled as the silent disease due to many people being unaware that they have it until the advanced stages. 10% of the population appear to suffer from more severe forms of gum disease.
