Periodontal diseases are infections that affect the tissue and bone that support teeth. Periodontal disease is often painless and for that reason can go untreated. However, early diagnosis of periodontal disease can help prevent costly treatment or worse, loss of teeth. Some common symptoms of periodontal disease can include; gums that bleed easily, persistent bad breath, loose or separating teeth, or a change in the fit of partial dentures.
