Periodontal-(GUM)-disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting your teeth. It can be prevented or easily treated if discovered early, but left untreated gum disease can lead to tissue, bone and tooth loss. Additionally, a number of studies suggest that gum disease may also be associated with more serious health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
