Periodontics and the Enemies of Your Mouth

Here’s some more disturbing news, about 75% of a person’s tooth loss is due to chronic periodontitis which is the build up of bacterial plaque.

This plaque infects the gums and causes them to dwindle over time. Teeth loosen because they are losing bone. Gums may become swollen or frequently bleed. Annoying spaces develop between the teeth where food may lodge… Yikes!
