Devastating Effects of Periodontal Disease

services-dentalSymptoms of periodontal disease, or gum disease, may include gums that bleed easily or are swollen and sensitive, redness around the gumline, teeth that feel loose, and other dental issues, but these symptoms are not the only devastating effects of the disease. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is an inflammatory condition that is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and has been linked to serious health problems.

Some serious health problems that periodontal disease has been linked to include:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Strokes
  • Pre-term birth
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Tooth loss
