Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a gum infection which damages the soft tissues in your mouth. It is so common that 7 out of 10 Canadians will develop gum disease at some point in their lifetime. When left without treatment, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, severe pain, and damage to the jawbone. Luckily, the disease is largely preventable if you follow proper oral hygiene practices such as brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups!
