The most important thing you learn about building and maintaining anything is to have a good foundation. The bone of your upper and lower jaw is the foundation that holds your teeth in place and allows you to chew with the force that you do. It is extremely important to maintain the health of that bone. inflammation and bacteria can penetrate deep into the gums and start to eradicate that bone over time. That process can lead to infection and tooth loss. Periodontal disease can also have negative effects on your body not related only to your mouth (especially if you suffer from any systemic illness) so it is extremely important to get a consult for treatment as soon as possible.
