Gum disease is caused by the colourless bacteria that forms on the teeth called plaque.
Periodontal Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal Disease or Gum Disease is an inflammatory disease caused by bacterial infection in the gums. This is also one of the most common causes of tooth loss in adults.
Gum Disease attacks the gums, bones and the surrounding structures of your teeth. This is a very serious condition, but it can be prevented and most importantly, stopped, through good dental hygiene and proper management and treatment of the disease.
Gum disease is caused by the colourless bacteria that forms on the teeth called plaque, which needs to be removed everyday through proper brushing techniques. If plaque is not removed from the teeth, the gums will start sliding downwards from the teeth. This movement creates pockets in between the teeth and gums where the plaque can enter and fill, which causes infection and further deterioration.
