toothbrushGum disease is one of the most widespread illnesses across the world. If it’s not too serious, it can be reversed by improving on oral hygiene and regular dentist visits. But if periodontitis is left untreated it can lead to tooth loss and bone loss.

Infection of the gums and teeth leads to bone inflammation.  This causes bone tissue to break down.  Read more about how and why this happens in an article from Newburg Family Dental here: Proteins and Periodontitis: Delving Into the Cause of Bone Loss | Newberg Family Dental
