In this video, Austin cosmetic and implant dentist Dr. Brandon Hall explains periodontal disease, its symptoms, and the best course of action in getting it addressed.
What is periodontal disease? Periodontal disease, or commonly called gum disease, is a chronic infection in people’s gums. And we call it the silent disease because often, people, they’re not in a lot of pain. They they don’t really notice that much. They may notice things like bleeding gums or bad breath or maybe some redness or swelling of the gums, but it’s a very common, serious condition that can lead to much, much bigger problems down the road. So periodontal disease or gum disease is something you want to get in and get taken care of right away.
