A Quick Look at Periodontal Disease

When you see your general dentistry provider for a dental cleaning and checkup, your dentist takes a close look at your gums to ensure that they are in good health. If he notices that your gums are red, swollen, or bleed easily, then he may diagnose you with a condition called gingivitis, which is the first stage of periodontal disease.

Watch this video to learn more about this oral health problem. When plaque and film build up on your teeth, this causes your body to send extra blood and healing cells to your gums. If the condition progresses, the gums can lose their attachment to the teeth in a condition known as periodontitis.
