Fight Periodontal Disease

When periodontal disease affects the bone and supporting tissue, it is termed periodontitis and is characterized by the formation of pockets or spaces between the tooth and gums. This may progress and cause chronic periodontal destruction leading to loosening or loss of teeth. Patients with active periodontal disease require more frequent dental cleanings to disrupt harmful bacteria.
