What Is Periodontal (pyria ) Disease?

Swollen and bleeding gums are the early sign that your gums are infected with bacteria 

Peri means" around" and Dontal means" teeth".Periodontal diseases are infection of the structures around the teeth.They include gums, root, bone and the supporting structures.If nothing is done it can destroy the supporting structure and jaw bone and eventually your teeth become so loose that it has to be removed.

A regular interval of visits to dentist and maintainance of proper hygiene and nutrition is a must to prevent gum diseases
