Periodontal diseases are often called as gum diseases or gingivitis. The mildest form of periodontal disease is Gingivitis which is often reversible even with professional treatment. Smoking, aging, genetic predisposition are the factors that contribute gingivitis. Untreated gingivitis leads to periodontitis. Toxins produced by the bacteria irritate the gums which stimulate a chronic inflammatory response and there by the tissues and bone that support the teeth are destroyed. Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature. Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method. Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
