One of the many triggers of periodontitis is the bacteria below the gingival surface. As a defense mechanism,the body tries to kill these bacteria. However, not only the bacteria, but also the periodontium and the bone are affected by the tooth. Consequently, it results in a degeneration of the periodontium and the bone,thereby leading to the loosening of the tooth.
