Periodontal Diseases

What is necrotizing periodontal disease?

A Answers (1)

  • Periodontal disease is an infection that affects the tissues and bone that support teeth. Necrotizing periodontal diseases result in the death (or necrosis) of tissues surrounding the tooth and connecting bone. This most commonly comes with pain, bleeding, and a foul odor. These infections can partly be caused by stress, tobacco use, malnutrition and HIV infection.
