What is Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)?
Periodontal Disease is a disease that affects the tissues and bone that support them. The gum tissue slowly pulls away from the tooth, and as the condition worsens, the tissue and bone that support the tooth are destroyed too. There are several types of gum diseases. After you meet with Dr. Crane, he will guide you on the best treatment for your condition.
