Periodontics: What does it mean?
Periodontal disease is caused by plaque built up over time. Plaque, when not remove properly, can cause your gum to become infected, leading to Gingivitis and Periodontitis.
Gingivitis is a condition where plaque, built-up over time, can cause the gum to become red and irritated. It may look swollen and bleed upon brushing. If left untreated, the plaque will form underneath the gum and lead to more serious problems. At this stage, a professional dental cleaning and improved oral hygiene will treat the condition.
