The need for periodontal treatment arises when a dental condition negatively affects the health of your gums and the parts of your jawbone, which secure your teeth in place. Gum infection can destroy your oral structures and cause tooth loss if treatment is not undertaken in time.
Excessive plaque deposits have been found to be the primary culprit behind the occurrence of gum issues. The bacteria present in plaque generate toxins that lead to irritation in the gum tissue. This causes redness, swelling, and bleeding. If not taken care of promptly, plaque deposits harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a deep dental cleaning performed in a dentist’s office.
If left untreated, the gums to loosen and pull away from the tooth surface, creating spaces known as periodontal pockets. Further bacteria and tartar can populate in these areas. The gums and bone slowly will deteriorate and can lead to tooth loss.
