牙周病的成因

牙周病是由黏附在牙齒表面的牙菌膜所引起的。如果口腔衛生欠佳,牙菌膜就會長期積聚在牙齦邊緣。牙菌膜裏的細菌會分泌毒素,刺激牙齒周圍的組織,例如牙齦、牙周膜和牙槽骨等,引致牙周病。

The Cause of Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease is caused by plaques attached on the surface of the tooth. Plaques will acumulate around the edge of gum if a person has poor oral hygenie . Bacterias from those plaques secrete toxins and irritate tissues around the tooth, such as gum, periodontal membrance, alveolus bone , which result in periodontal disease .

The Cause of Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease is caused by plaque sticking to the surface of the tooth. Plaque accumulates around the edge of gums as a result of poor oral hygiene. Bacteria from the plaque secretes toxins which irritate tissues around the tooth, such as gums, periodontal membranes, and the alveolar bone, which results in periodontal disease.

Notes: Plaque (dental plaque) is an uncountable noun. Only major problem is spelling and use of singular/plural nouns.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

The Cause of Periodontitis
Periodontitis is caused by tooth velum adhesive to the surface of teeth. Tooth velum will accumulate at the rim of gums for a long time in the event of poor oral hygiene. Bacteria in the tooth velum can secrete toxin to stimulate tissues around teeth such as gum, parodontium and alveolar bone etc, which will lead to periodontitis.

Hi Haitian Lu

tooth velum adhesive should be “plaque sticking to”
in the event of poor oral hygiene should be “due to poor oral hygeine”. In English, “poor oral hygiene” is not an “event” is this sense.
toxin should be “toxins”
should be “irritate” as “stimulate” is a more positive word, “irritate” is negative.
should be “periodontia” as it is the plural.
if you have “such as” you don’t need “etc.” at the end because “such as” means there are more items that what you have listed.

Great work! Your grammar is very good, just need to work on your word choice a bit.

The cause of periodontosis
Periodontosis is caused by plaque attached on the surface of teeth.If there is poor dental hygiene, for a long period of time, plaque can accumulate on the edge of gums.Bacteria from plaque can produce toxins, stimulating tissues around teeth, for instance, gingiva, periodontal ligaments and alveolar bones, which causes periodontal diseases.

Notes:
“attached on” sounds like somebody has physically attached something onto something else. “attached to” is better or “sticking to”.
should be “irritate” as “stimulate” is a more positive word, “irritate” is negative
periodontal membranes

Really good work. Main problem is that your sentences are too long. If you keep your sentences a bit shorter (where possible) you could improve greatly. Really good job!
