What is a periodontal disease?
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a gum inflammation that occurs due to increased bacterial growth in the mouth. Lack of oral hygiene and lifestyle habits are some of the many causes of gum disease. In its early stages, gum disease remains painless, but in case the bacterial growth is not controlled over time it may cause tissue loss resulting in tooth damage.
What causes gum disease?
Bacteria in plaque, is the primary cause of gum disease. Other factors may include smoking, poor oral hygiene habits, illnesses or family history of dental disease. If plaque is not removed it can harden and turn into tartar (calculus). Additionally, dental plaque will continue to form on the tartar. Brushing or flossing cannot remove tartar; a dental professional will need to conduct a dental cleaning to remove it.

Plaque control is one way to control the progression of gum disease and prevent it from happening again. Plaque control includes brushing your teeth after every meal, cleaning between your teeth daily and scheduling regular dental visits.
