Gum diseases are affecting the supporting structures of the teeth.They are of generally 2 types. Gingivitis and periodontiits. Gingivitis affects only soft tissue (gingiva) covering the teeth. But periodontiits, the advanced form of disease causes loss of the attachment of the tooth to the bony socket. This results in destruction of bone and tooth mobility, leads to tooth loss. The cause of gum disease is due to the accumulation of dental plaque and calculus commonly called as tartar. These are nothing but accumulated and hardened food particles along with various microbes including bacteria, viruses, fungi etc
