Periodontal (gum) disease is a progressive disease that begins when bacteria penetrate and grow beneath the gums. As the disease spreads, gum tissue and eventually bone become infected and are destroyed.
An estimated 75 percent of Americans have some form of periodontal disease.
Patients typically experience bleeding and swollen gums, persistent bad breath, and gum recession.
