Periodontal disease is the name for bacterial infections of the gums in the mouth. In most cases this disease is linked to poor oral hygiene. Some people however can have a genetic pre-disposition to the disease. The disease once initiated can progress more rapidly in people who have diabetes, especially if the diabetes is poorly controlled.

Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums (gingiva) around the teeth due to improper cleaning of teeth. The condition is almost always reversible. Brushing teeth with toothpaste and flossing with dental floss are the best ways to prevent gingivitis.
