Periodontal disease also called Periodontists or Gum Disease is a bacterial infection that destroys the supporting structures that hold your teeth in place. This bacteria infection has broken through the first line of defense, your gums, and now attacks the ligaments and bone that hold the teeth in the mouth. This is the stage where the bone loss occurs causing the pocket (the space between the gum and the tooth) to deepen and widen. Left untreated, this disease can lead to bone grafts, gum grafts, and ultimately tooth loss.
the greatest health risk of advanced periodontal disease is the infection itself. The immune system can handle a great many diseases and foreign agents but it begins to wear down when fighting prolonged infections such as periodontal disease. In time, the weakened immune system may become so overtaxed that it cannot ward off common infections and viruses. What may have started as a cold can turn into pneumonia when the immune system is weakened. Truly, this is the biggest threat posed by advanced periodontal disease.
