It is a condition where the gums bleed and start to separate from the teeth. The bone supporting the teeth can be destroyed and the teeth can get loose and may need to be extracted. Treatment involves learning to clean the teeth and then having the teeth and the roots cleaned usually using local anesthetic. Most areas respond well to this, however sometimes a few teeth have persistent problems and need further treatment or periodontal surgery.
