Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory oral disease that progressively destroys the tooth-supporting apparatus. It usually manifests as a worsening of gingivitis and then, if untreated, with loosening and loss of teeth as defined by Merck Manual Professional Version.
Poor oral health not limited to professional work but at home care as well, can lead to the beginning stages of periodontal disease which starts in the form of gingivitis. Some common signs to watch out for in your day to day include but are not limited to:

- Bad breathe
When it comes to your health, maintenance is key in order to catch these problems. Early intervention involving a dental hygienist in the treatment of gingivitis can in many cases assist in reversing the condition.
