ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the causes and treatment of periodontoclasia. Researchers have debated the causes of the disease, but it is likely that it is caused by a combination of factors including immune system weakness and bacterial invasion. It can be treated by removing any objects in the mouth that may be hosting bacteria and stimulating the immune system to fight the disease.
