Periodontal (gum) disease occurs when plaque is allowed to accumulate on the teeth for an extended period of time. When left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and has also been linked to many severe health diseases, including:

  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
