Periodontal disease is caused by plaque buildup in your mouth and can cause gum inflammation (gingivitis) or a more severe infection causing inflammation around the tooth (periodontitis).
Symptoms of periodontal disease may include:
- inflamed gums
- bad breath
- sensitive teeth
- receding gums
- loose teeth
Treatment of periodontal disease may include:

- antibiotics to help control infection

- grafts of bone or gums
- along with treatment, good daily hygiene of the teeth is strongly recommended to help maintain a healthy smile
