Periodontal Disease - Identification & Treatment
Periodontal disease is one of the most widespread diseases across the world. However, it is preventable and can be easily treated when it is found early enough.
Periodontal disease is another name for gum disease, which is caused by bacteria that collects at the gum line in the form of dental plaque. The plaque needs to be removed by brushing and cleaning between the teeth twice a day. If not properly cleaned, the gum starts to come away from the tooth - forming pockets that allow the plaque to grow below the gum line.
