What is Periodontitis?
Periodontitis is an advanced stage of gingivitis, which causes gums to detach from teeth, forming spaces that become breeding grounds for infection and plaque. To combat this, the body releases bacterial toxins to fight plaque buildup. Unfortunately, the body's bacteria also causes bones, gums and connecting supportive tissue to break down. If left untreated, teeth become loose and must be removed.
How Do Periodontal Screenings Help You?
Periodontal screenings ensure that your teeth are constantly monitored for any sign of gum decay. When performed by Dr. Karim at Leaside Park Dental Centre, you can relax, knowing that any potential problems will be nipped in the bud.
