Hygiene of oral cavity is very important for each person separately. There are a number of diseases that you are not aware that you can get. Periodontitis is a disease that damages the gums and bones.
The inflammation of the edge portion of the gums (gingivitis) is the early phase of the disease, in which only part of the tissue is damaged.
If detected at an early stage, gingivitis is curable. If left untreated, it can lead to inflammation of the system that supports the teeth (periodontitis). This is an advanced stage of periodontal disease, where the gums can be seriously damaged. This requires intensive care, but can still cause loss of one or more teeth.
