Gum Disease (Periodontitis)

Periodontal disease (PD) is also a potential bacterial/viral transmissible infection disease that commonly causes permanent, irreversible damage to your teeth supporting tissues (gums and bone). This generally affect your quality of life by generating bad breath, bad taste in your mouth, pain, and/or localized collection of pus (tooth/teeth abscesses). PD is considered a “silence killer” since many individuals do not feel much, and when symptoms occur, they generally are associated to most advanced/severe cases. In addition, PD has been closely associated with many other deleterious medical conditions (systemic diseases).
