1. Plaque full of bacteria, that turns to calculus, builds up between the teeth and gums.
2. The gums become red and inflamed caused by the body’s reaction to the bacteria.
3. The bone recedes due to the inflammatory response to bacteria.
4. Pockets are formed (space between the tooth and gum) due to decreased bone tissue.
5. If the gum disease is left untreated, over time the teeth become loose and may be lost.
