Plaque-induced Periodontal Disease Diagnoses

Notes

Summary

Plaque-induced periodontal disease is a type of gum disease caused by the buildup of plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, on the teeth and gums. The disease is characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums, which can lead to the destruction of the supporting tissues of the teeth, including the bone. The diagnosis of periodontal conditions may involve a physical exam, periodontal probing, X-rays, and lab exams.
