Periodontal disease is an infection of tissues, bones and ligaments that support and surround the teeth. Plaque contains food, bacteria and bacterial waste products that accumulate on the teeth after eating and is left on the teeth and gums causing irritation.
When plaque builds up and hardens into tartar, the structure of the bone around the teeth becomes affected. This condition affects people in their 30s and 40s; however, men tend to be more susceptible to periodontal disease than women.
The early stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis when gums become red and swollen and bleed easily while brushing. It gingivitis is left untreated it leads to periodontitis where the inner layer of the gum and bone recede from the teeth and the pockets. The space between the teeth and gums get infected and the bacterial toxins begin to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth together. Over time the pockets deepen and destroy bone and gum tissues and eventually the teeth start to feel loose and fall out.
Periodontal disease is caused because of poor diet, braces, dentures or teeth irregularities, smoking, weak immune system, medical conditions like diabetes, hormonal changes, inadequate sleep and certain drugs such as contraceptives, antidepressants, steroids, anti-epilepsy or cancer medication.
