Gum disease is basically caused by of plaque ( a bacteria that forms on the teeth) . If the plaque is not removed by brushing or regular check ups, then it will continue to build up and create toxins that damage the gums. Periodontal disease forms just below the gum line and create small gaps that separate the gum from the teeth. It has two stages.
Gingivitis - An early stage of gum disease, where the gums become red and swollen , and bleed easily. At this stage the disease is treatable and can easily be removed by daily brushing and flossing.
