What Causes Periodontal Disease?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he explains the ways periodontal disease develops.

Have you ever wondered what causes gum disease or periodontal disease? Well, it’s primarily caused by bacteria, essentially a bacterial infection. In most cases, the gum doesn’t exhibit significant movement, although it can become swollen. However, beneath the gum line, where the infection is present, it silently erodes the bone and support structures of your teeth. Surprisingly, many individuals may not even be aware of this ongoing process. Some have come to us with teeth in their hands, explaining that they never experienced any discomfort. Suddenly, their tooth became loose, leading to its eventual loss. This phenomenon occurs due to gum disease—a bacterial infection. This underscores the critical importance of regular dental cleanings. Ideally, you’ll never experience gum problems, but if you do, we’re here to provide solutions. Our goal is to ensure that you never encounter gum disease issues again, putting an end to past problems and preventing future ones.
