Are your gums red, tender, swollen, or bleed easily? If so, you may suffer from periodontal disease (gum disease). Periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque. If periodontal disease is allowed to progress untreated, it can cause tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums. In addition, periodontal disease has been linked to several health conditions, including:

  • Pregnancy complications
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Respiratory conditions
