About periodontal disease, the main cause of tooth loss
Periodontal disease is a disease of the tissues around the teeth: gums, alveolar bone, root cementum and ligaments that hold the teeth in.
It is caused mainly by bacterial plaque that causes inflammation of the marginal periodontal. In early stages, periodontal disease is called gingivitis and is reversible with appropriate treatment and by maintaining a rigorous hygiene. If left untreated, gingivitis may result in periodontitis and finally the loss of teeth on the dental arch.
Prevention of periodontal disease
To maintain healthy gums and teeth is mandatory maintaining a rigorous hygiene. Doing correct tooth brushing for cleaning teeth and mouth by using the water irrigator, flossing, interdental brushes, with regular checks and professional cleaning in the dental office are the first steps to prevent and treat periodontal disease.
