- If gingivitis can’t be healed, it might lead to periodontitis, which means inflammation around the tooth.
- Infected spaces called “pockets” are formed when gums pull away from the teeth.
- The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque increases and get bigger below the gum line.
- Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to infection begin to break the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place
- The bones, gums, and tissue that holds the teeth are damaged if not healed. The teeth might loose and have to be removed.
