Periodontal disease is extremely common and unfortunately, often progresses for many years undetected and therefore untreated. Why? Periodontal disease is not a disease that only happens to people with poor hygiene. Proper hygiene helps, but gum disease has a strong underlying genetic component. This is why we often see patients with good hygiene still suffer from gum disease.
