Having a periodontal disease not only impacts your oral health but stands as a barrier if you decided to go for dental implants. To get your dental implant placed safely and successfully, you should have good periodontal health with adequate bone quality & density.
What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal diseases are a group of oral diseases that affect soft & hard tissues supporting your teeth including bone, gingiva, and periodontal ligaments. They occur as a result of the accumulation of plaques over teeth, making it easy for bacteria to spread into the bone and other surrounding tissues.

For mild cases, It would be better for you if you removed tartar & plaques in the early stages. Some treatments might be done for you in the early stages such as Scaling & root planning.
