What is a gum disease?
Gum disease occurs when there is inflammation around the tooth. Through time, the bone around your teeth dissolves away.
Your bone around your teeth is very important as it serves as the foundation to holding your tooth down so you can eat.
Bone loss around your teeth may be managed. This is why, at Colin Street Periodontics, our specialist Periodontists aim to keep your teeth by minimising further bone loss.
