What Is Periodontal Diseases

Approximately 80% of the population have some form of periodontal disease. This can be any type of infection that involves the supporting tissues of a tooth and includes the gums and the bone. Sometimes it is commonly called Gum Disease

Gum Disease and General Health

Periodontal disease (infection of the gum and bone around teeth) once thought to be associated with the inevitable consequence of aging has had much research invested in it. We have now come to learn that there are many risk factors and risk-indicators associated with it. But also, periodontal disease is linked to many other diseases of the body.

Patient Information

The phrase “long in the tooth” is a common one – and people think that they should naturally lose their teeth as they get older – but this need not be the case!!

True, people do become more prone to gum disease as they get older and therefore more at risk of losing their teeth, but this doesn’t mean that nothing can be done about it!


Implants and Gum Disease

Implants (metal titanium rods) have fast become the option of choice when faced with missing teeth. They provide a suitable fixed solution where you can have teeth that do not have to be taken out like dentures. However, they too can become infected leading to deterioration of the gum and bone in which the implant is embedded - ultimately leading to failure of the implant.
