Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissue; it is not an infection of the teeth. Therefore, it's important to understand that removing your teeth won't actually treat or cure gum disease. However, extractions can be an important part of your overall treatment plan to restore your oral health. Tooth extraction in the case of periodontal disease is usually done if all else fails.
However, it should be noted that tooth extraction alone does not solve gum disease. Treatment for gum disease includes a few appointments with the dentist, who will also recommend medications that are part of the treatment process. In general, gum disease doesn't just go away once your teeth have been removed. The problem may continue to grow if left without regular care and treatment.
