Periodontal disease is the main cause of tooth loss in adults. It is caused by a build-up of plaque which causes inflammation of the gums. The treatment includes scaling to remove the plaque above and below the gum line, smoothing the rough surface of the root to promote healing, and oral irrigation, which uses an anti-microbial liquid to wash and kill germs to promote healthy tissues.
