The Causes of gum disease

Plaque is the main cause of gum disease since it accumulates on the teeth and contains bacteria.

Gum disease is primarily caused by plaque, a sticky layer of germs that builds up on  teeth. Plaque irritates the gums and makes them bleed easily. If plaque is not brushed off, it can harden and further irritate the gums. This hardened plaque is called calculus or tartar, and itcan only be removed by a dental health professional.
