Gum Disease - Valparaiso, IN

What is periodontal disease/gum disease?
Close up of patient with gum diseaseGum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by the bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.

Gum disease, when untreated, can lead to a loss of your teeth. Because periodontal disease attacks the bone and tissues that support your teeth, eventually a patient who does not seek treatment early enough may be left with a lifetime of missing teeth. In the past, this also meant a life of wearing dentures. With today's dental technology and research around dental implants, missing one or more teeth no longer means giving up your favorite foods—but can mean a renewed sense of health and well-being with naturally functioning implant-supported dentures.
