Periodontitis is a serious and chronic gum disease infection that causes damage to the tissues and bone around your teeth. This chronic infection can eventually jeopardize the health of your teeth and has been linked to other serious health risks. Chronic periodontitis affects 47.2% of adults over 30 in the United States. You could have periodontitis if you have red, swollen bleeding gums, receding gums, loose teeth. But often it is possible to have gum disease and have no warning signs since it is usually painless. At Noble Dental, we are able to diagnosis and provide the proper treatment to stop further damage and complications caused by periodontitis.
