Periodontitis is one of the most common diseases we suffer, regardless of age. Although there are different degrees, and teeth may be lost in the most serious cases.
Periodontitis is an inflammation and infection of the ligaments and bones that support the teeth. It can range from simple gum inflammation to a serious disease.
When gum inflammation and infection (called gingivitis) are not treated, and the problem gets progressively more serious, it can end up causing the teeth to become loose in the gums and finally fall out.
