At Walding and Associates, the periodontists regularly see cases of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a condition affecting one or more of the periodontal tissues, such as the alveolar bone (bones holding the tooth sockets) and gingiva (gums). Periodontists commonly see the disease caused by an inflammation of one or more of those areas due to plaque buildup.
Mild cases of gingivitis are very common, but you should consult with a periodontist to make sure the condition doesn’t escalate to periodontitis. Periodontitis is the weakening of the alveolar bone surrounding your teeth, and can lead to tooth loss and the need for dental implants.
