Periodontal disease also known as gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar in the mouth. When not treated, your gums can begin to pull away from the teeth and form spaces which in turn can become infected.

Periodontal Care (Cleaning)
Periodontal disease or gum disease consists of a bacterial infection to the gum and bone that supports your teeth. Symptoms can range from minor gum bleeding when you brush your teeth to more intensive bone loss. Proper periodontal care routines, such as brushing twice a day, flossing, and regular exams are excellent ways to combat gum disease.
A periodontal surgery may be recommended if your gum disease is not healing after intensive periodontal cleaning, such as scaling and root planing. Choosing to get periodontal surgery may make your teeth easier to clean.
