What causes periodontal disease?

Bacteria, that organism found nearly everywhere, is the primary culprit in periodontal disease. Despite practicing oral hygiene, bacteria will always be present in our oral cavities. Bacteria produces sticky, colorless plaque on the teeth. Brushing and flossing will help eliminate plaque. However, plaque that is not removed will form tartar, a harder substance found on the teeth. Tartar harbors bacteria, which will make it easier for the bacteria to invade your gums, causing gum disease.

Now you can kiss your overbite or underbite goodbye. Have an attractive smile that’s truly remarkable from an expert’s perspective. Call us in Wilbraham today at (413) 596-9657 or use our online Request an Appointment form.
