Periodontal Disease, or more commonly known as gum disease, is when poor brushing and care leads to plaque being left on the teeth along the gum line. This eats away at the gums and can lead to tooth decay and bone loss.
Signs of gum disease include bleeding and receding gums, sensitivity, loose teeth, and chronic bad breath.
