Periodontal disease is an infection of the " tissues" that hold your teeth in place. It's often caused by bacteria and mucus building up on your teeth to form plaque. When plaque isn't removed, it hardens and becomes tartar, which can't be removed with brushing. It's important to maintain proper oral hygiene to protect your gums from tartar.
