Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth.
Your gums are supported by gum tissue (or gingiva), connective fibers called periodontal ligament which anchor tooth roots into their sockets and bone . With proper care, these tissues can help you keep a lifetime smile!
For many adults though some form or another of this condition develops - untreated it becomes one major cause for losing dental work due to bacteria accumulating between cells on its surface below skin level where action must be taken quickly before irreversible damage has been done
What is periodontal disease?
A periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. Your gum tissue isn't attached to them as high up in our mouths - there's a very shallow v-shaped crevice between tooth and gums, called sulcus for short! There are many types according what part it affects but generally speaking these diseases attack just below where we can feel this kind of attachment (the junction) with its supporting bone or alveolar/dental plate like structures which make sure everything stays together nicely during chewing motions; when they're damaged by external sources such us niches created from poor hygiene habits etc., pockets will develop due not only did inflammation inside those weakened areas
What causes periodontal diseases?
Your mouth is constantly covered in a film of bacteria. Some produce toxins that can irritate the tissues supporting your teeth, damaging their attachment to bones and gums.
You can remove plaque with good oral hygiene — brushing your teeth twice a day and cleaning between them once every other day. When the bacteria-filled gunk builds up along our gum lines, we increase our risk for periodontal disease!
Plaque that hardens into tartar is not good for your teeth because it makes the surface of our bones more difficult to clean. Whenever you have a cleaning, this must be removed by professionals in order not only protect us from possible disease but also maintain dental health overall!
