Every periodontal condition, inclusive of the periodontist, are the diseases that infect the periodontium. These are basically the tissue surrounding the tooth and that which provide support to the tooth. When periodontist occur, the alveolar bone covering the tooth is lost gradually. Microorganisms like the bacteria and its forms attach to the tooth and proliferate over in time resulting in overactive immune system having inflammation.

The Causes Of The Disease

The plaque is generally a pale yellow bio film that develops naturally on the teeth area and mouth. It is formed by bacteria which try to attach with the tooth, making a sticky layer. Even regular brushing can result in reduction of plaque, but sometimes it builds up again within one or two days. This plague gradually damages the teeth and the surrounding tissue.
