Periodontitis is often referred to as gum disease. It is one of the most common chronic diseases among humans.
The cause of periodontal disease is bacterial plaque, which builds up rapidly in the mouth and must be cleaned away daily. If bacterial plaque is not removed from the teeth regularly, the gums become inflamed and bleed easily.
The two main broad groups of periodontal disease are Gingivitis – the early, reversible and less serious form of periodontal disease; and Periodontitis, which causes receding gums and the permanent loss of supporting bone.
