As gum disease progresses it literally "melts" away the bony support surrounding the teeth. Sore, swollen gums that bleed easily are common signs and symptoms of gum disease. Gum abscesses and abscessed teeth are also common symptoms of progressive gum disease. As the periodontal infection becomes more advanced, bacteria and bacteria laden toxins enter the bloodstream. This may have significant negative effects on other organ systems. Recent research shows that periodontal disease can increase a patient's risk for heart attacks and strokes, as well as complicate the negative effects of diabetes.
