What is the cause of periapical abscesses?

Periapical abscesses are almost always caused by refined sugar, sugary foods, which are almost always blamed on "poor dental hygiene". The main issue is that refined sugar and sugary foods feed the plaque bacteria (the bad bacteria) such as Streptococcus mutans, Lactobacilli, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Actinomyces viscosus, Nocardia spp and Streptococcus mutans.

Chances are your tooth decay was caused by you yourself when you started feeding your bad bacteria, whenever you ate refined sugar and sugary foods, you kept feeding your bad bacteria. Then dental plaque was formed. And, through dental caries (cavities) the plaque bacteria gradually infected the pulp chamber, where pulpitis (inflammation of the dental pulp) occured. And, when the infection reached your alveolar bone (jaw bone), a periapical abscess was formed.

It all starts with refined sugar, or sugary foods. Why? Because tooth decay occurs whenever you eat refined sugar or foods made with refined sugar. If you practice poor dental hygiene, plaque is formed. And then it's the plaque bacteria that cause periodontitis (gum disease), and the gum disease manifests itself as redness and swelling.

Then the gum gradually separates from the base of your tooth. And then periodontal "in the gum" pockets are formed that are very difficult to keep clean. They allow the plaque bacteria to enter and spread.

What is the significance of periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is significant because most people lose their teeth to periodontal disease, not tooth decay.
