Periodontal Disease affects about 50% of the American adult population. The Disease, once present in the mouth, attacks the upper and lower jawbones, gums, and the ligaments that attach teeth to the bones.
What Happens with Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal Disease is a severe case of Gingivitis created by tarter and bacteria building up below the gum line. The build-up creating Spirochetes Bacterium. As Spirochetes Bacterium spreads, they contaminate and destroy everything they touch.
The upper and lower jawbones begin to degenerate and gums recede. Then the destruction of ligaments that hold the teeth in the jawbones begins. Teeth begin to fall out.
