Severe periodontitis affects 5–15% of population in developed countries. This disease initiates acute immunological responses of the body to specific bacteria that cause inflammatory response with which the body tries to protect itself. To put it simply, the bone is lost around bacterial growths to avoid them from spreading to the bone tissue and then to the bloodstream and other tissues. Although a similar protective mechanism of the body is at work in case of mild-to-moderate forms of periodontitis, it progresses at a much slower pace.
