Periodontal disease is a widespread disease of the teeth. Periodontal disease is a genetic condition but it may be worsened considerably by lack of dental hygiene and smoking.
Periodontal disease is an infection of the gum. It leaves deep pockets around the teeth that cannot be cleaned by ordinary tooth brushing but must be cleaned by a dentist.
Periodontal disease means that you should be treated two to six times annually depending on how progressed the disease is.
