Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a leading cause of tooth loss in Canadian adults. Good oral hygiene and regular dental examinations are essential in prevention and early detection of gum disease – which sometimes developing without any warning signs.

The inflammation and infection of gums, ligaments, bone, and other tissues surrounding the teeth. Gingivitis (gums disease) and periodontitis (gums and bone disease) are the two main forms of periodontal disease also called gum disease or pyorrhea.

Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is one of the most common infections today. More than 75% of North Americans over 35 years of age have some form of periodontal disease. Although many are infected, few know they actually have the disease. In a recent study, 8 out of 10 people surveyed believed they did not have periodontal disease, 7 out of 10 exhibited one or more symptoms.
