The word periodontal means “around the tooth.” Periodontal diseases are serious bacterial infections that destroy the attachment fibers and supporting bone that hold your teeth in your mouth. Left untreated, Periodontal diseases can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease is sometimes hard to recognize because there is often no pain, and there may not be any bleeding, redness or swelling.
