Periodontal diseases affect millions of people. These diseases start early in life and affect four out of five people, resulting in early loss of teeth. It is very important to have regular check ups when a periodontal assessment can be made. Periodontal disease involves infection and inflammation of the gums initially, and if ‘untreated’ progresses to destruction of the bone surrounding each tooth. Eventually this can lead to loosening of teeth and their eventual loss.
