Untreated gum disease will lead to destruction of supporting tissue around the tooth. This will lead to bone loss, gingival recession and pocket formation. There are a lot of etiological factors for periodontal disease but the most common reason being local factors like the tartar build up. Apart from through daily brushing and flossing, regular professional clean by dentist or hygienist can help keep the disease under control. Uncontrolled periodontal disease will lead to loss of teeth. Certain medical conditions like diabetes can influence the progression of gum disease.
