Periodontal disease can affect patients of all ages. The treatment restores the supporting tissues surrounding the teeth to a healthy condition, maintaining the function and appearance of the dentition, hopefully for the patient’s lifetime. The disease can affect patients of all ages - symptoms include bleeding gums, loosening of the teeth, bad breath, tenderness on biting or it may be symptom-free.
It is a condition where the gums start to separate from the teeth, the ligament and bone holding the teeth dissolves and the teeth become loose and may be lost. If your dentist suspects this disease, he or she will advise treatment and may refer you on to a periodontist.
