Causes of Periodontal Disease
Causes of Periodontal Disease
09/07/2018

Periodontal disease is a gum disease also known as periodontitis. If left untreated, it may result in tooth loss. The progressive disease begins with the irritation and inflammation of the gingival tissues that surround and support the teeth. This is caused by plaque buildup and results in an ongoing bacterial infection. The infection colonizes in the gingival tissue. Deep pockets then form between the teeth and the gums, damaging the gums and the underlying jawbone and leading to tooth loss. In more severe cases, the bacteria from this infection can migrate through the bloodstream to affect other parts of the body.
