How does Gum and Bone Disease Develop?

Gum and Bone Disease at Family Dentistry Hammond- Advanced Dental Concepts

Plaque is a bacteria that grows and clings on the tooth’s surface. It is also known as microbial plaque and it’s one of the most common issues people face.

Plaque is a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If this plaque is not removed, it will turn into tartar. If both plaque and tartar are not removed, they can destroy the gums and bone supporting the teeth. What’s more, tartar or dental calculus cannot be easily removed by brushing your teeth. It must be done by a professional who specializes in dental cleaning.

Four out of five people have gum and bone disease and don’t even know it! This is because this disease is typically painless in the beginning stages. In the case of tartar buildup, you won’t even notice it at the beginning. This, in turn, makes it hard to remove once it starts to grow in your gums or teeth. If not attended to immediately, plaque will disrupt your immune system which will lead to an inflammation in your body. You will get the flu that will last years and even months due to your immune system fighting that flu caused by plaque.

My dental procedure with them went smoothly. I was surprised because at first I didn't expect it to be done that fast but when my dentist said I'm done, I'm just so happy. Also, they were very gentle throughout the whole procedure.
