Periodontal disease is a preventable oral condition that, if left untreated, can lead to gum deterioration and ultimately tooth loss. In fact, periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults over the age of 35. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check ups can often times prevent or stem the progression of periodontal disease. Additionally, other health factors such as smoking, drinking, diet, medications, and other health conditions all play a part in the progression of periodontal disease.
