What is periodontal (gum) disease?

Dental ImplantsPeriodontal (gum) disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and supporting bone around teeth. Periodontal disease can be localized (around one tooth) or generalized (throughout the mouth).

If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to premature tooth loss.

Dr. Aufderheide is a periodontist that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and the placement of dental implants.
