In this video Dr. Kamran Sahabi dentist in Glendale, CA discusses periodontal disease. Periodontal disease also called periodontitis or gum disease is a bacterial infection that destroys the supporting structures that hold your teeth in place. Your gums are the first line of defense against bacterial infection, but once it has broken through them it will begin to attack the ligaments and bone that hold the teeth in the mouth. It is in this stage of periodontitis that loss of bone due to bacterial erosion can occur, which will then cause the pocket space between the gum and tooth to grow deeper and wider. If left untreated, this disease can lead to costly and painful procedures such as gum grafts, bone grafts, and ultimately tooth loss. Cosmetic dental procedures can be done at California Dental Groups of Southern California.
