|The major cause of a Periodontal disease
is a bacterial infection that affects the fibers and
supporting bone of your teeth. It often progresses without
pain or symptoms. If the bacteria called plaque is not
removed daily it hardens into tartar, and collects even
more plaque. This builds up and creates an inflamation
of the gums called gingivitis. After a while the gums
begin to pull away and recede from the teeth, allowing
the bacteria to deepen, and start destroying the bone
that anchors the teeth in place.
9 out of 10 people are afflicted with some form of
periodontal disease in their lifetime.
