Periodontitis is the technical term used to describe your gum and bone health. It begins as light inflammation and gets worse over time when it is left untreated. Luckily, maintaining a dedicated oral hygiene routine is the easiest way to deflect the symptoms of periodontitis. Otherwise, dental plaque encourages harmful bacteria to infect your teeth which can lead to bleeding gums, tooth loss, bad breath, receding gums, and shifted teeth. Periodontal treatments can be done with non-invasive measures like scaling, root planing, and topical or oral antibiotics.
