50% of the population is suffering gum disease.
Periodontal disease does not just affect the gums; it also damages the bone tissue and ligaments surrounding the gums. If the harmful bacteria and plaque is not removed from our teeth our bodies naturally start to fight the bacteria but this subsequently means that our immune systems and the bacterial infection start to break down our bone tissue and ligaments.
What happens if it is left untreated?
If gum disease is left untreated the teeth can eventually come loose and fall out, a health problem that is the main cause of tooth loss in adults across the UK. Periodontal disease is not curable, but treatment and proper management can prevent further harm. Treatment could effectively prevent you from losing your natural teeth.

If you need a second opinion or you recognise advanced periodontal disease is within your patient then General Dental Guidelines state that the diagnosis be verified by a specialist. This is because at this stage of the disease, loss of teeth and bone is very likely unless treated. Treatment of advanced gum disease is complex and involves a variety of treatment options hence consultation with Dr. Snoad is highly recommended to ensure the correct treatment pathway.
