After every meal we should brush and floss our teeth. If food particles are not properly removed between your teeth and gums, the bacteria will colonize within hours resulting in plaque.
Over time the bacteria will attract minerals like Calcium and Magnesium from your saliva and these minerals will calcify, invading your gums, protecting the bacteria and allowing it to fester beneath the tissues.
Tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue and bone that surrounds your teeth can then occur if it is not properly treated and is a direct result of Periodontal Disease. We often can use a laser or specialized instruments to scale the mineralized formations from below the gumline.
