What is the cause of gum disease?
The mouth is full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles are constantly forming a sticky, colorless “plaque” that is deposited on the teeth. Brushing and flossing use help eliminate this board. When the plaque is not removed, it hardens into deposits called a “Tartar” or “Tatar” that simply brushing can not remove. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.
The longer they remain the plaque and tartar on the teeth, the more damage they can do. The bacteria cause inflammation of the gums that is called “gingivitis”. If a person has gingivitis, the gums become red, swollen and bleed easily. Gingivitis is a mild form of gum that usually can be cured with brushing and use of dental floss daily, in addition to regular cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist disease. This form of periodontal disease does not cause loss of bone and tissue that hold teeth.
Periodontitis (or pyorrhea)
When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to “periodontitis”. This means “inflammation around the tooth”. In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces or pockets that become infected (also known as “abscesses”). The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Toxins from the bacteria and the natural response of the body against infection begin to destroy the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. When periodontitis is not treated, bones, gums and tissues that support the teeth are destroyed. Over time, teeth can become loose and you have to get them out.
