Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that affects the soft tissues and destroys the bone that supports the teeth. Periodontitis is, in addition, the second stage of gum disease. It is irreversible and can lead to tooth loss or weakness. Periodontitis requires immediate medical-dental treatment.
Periodontal disease is common in both developed and underdeveloped countries and affects approximately 20-50% of the world’s population.
It is a disease that, in general, can be prevented and is usually the result of incorrect and poor oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing, and seeing your dentist on a regular basis can greatly increase your chances of successfully treating periodontitis and reduce the likelihood of future periodontitis.
