Periodontal Disease in Hernando, MS
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. The disease is an inflammatory condition caused by the bacteria in your mouth. As the condition worsens, periodontal disease gradually attacks and destroys the gums that are protecting and supporting your natural teeth. Over eighty percent of Americans are affected by some form of periodontal disease.
Some of the symptoms include:

- Teeth that feel loose

- Bad breath
- Gum recession
If you are experiencing some of these symptoms, you may want to have your mouth checked for periodontal disease. At our practice, we check each patient for signs during every regular appointment. We can offer more in depth diagnoses and treatments if signs of the disease are found.
