What Causes Periodontal Diseases?

Periodontal Disease is caused by plaque, a sticky film that always forming on your teeth. Plaque contains bacteria that can irritate and inflame the gums.

Inflamed gums can pull away from the teeth and from spaces called pockets. These pockets collect more bacteria. If the infected pockets are not treated, the gum disease can get worse.
