What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is a common inflammatory condition that happens around the tooth in the soft tissue of the gums. This infection is commonly known as gingivitis. If left untreated, this disease can spread throughout the mouth and into the jawbone. Once the infection has spread throughout the mouth, it becomes harder to treat.

You may have gum disease if you:

  1. Receding gum line – Chronic periodontitis
  2.  Loss of gum attachment – Aggressive periodontitis
  3. Suffer from HIV, immunosuppression, and malnutrition – Necrotizing periodontitis
  4. Have respiratory disease, diabetes, & heart disease at a young age – Periodontitis caused by systemic disease

From the phone call to Missy, greetings when I arrived, a great assistant Addie, dental assistant Angel, and THE terrific Dr Walters, what could have been a terrible day turned into finding my new dentist. The procedure was tougher on them than me. Lol. Love them all Joanne.”
