Plaque… One Factor Of Gum Disease

periodontal-treatmentIf plaque is not removed, it can cause your gums (gingivae) to pull away from your teeth, forming pockets in which more bacteria can collect. Plaque that is not removed also harden into calculus along and under your gums. The pockets and hard calculus make it difficult to remove plaque without the help from a dentist, and periodontal disease can soon develop. If left untreated, periodontal disease can damage the tissues that support your teeth, even the bone. Dr. Williams, at the Knoxville Dental Center, wants you to keep in mind that your daily oral health routine and professional dental care are more than just taking care of your teeth. They are important steps in taking care of your overall health.
