Gum disease is caused by bacteria rich plaque and tartar on the teeth. This bacteria causes harmful chemicals to irritate the gums and cause bleeding.
When the plaque is not effectively removed daily, gums become swollen and bleed, and over time gums pull away from teeth, causing periodontal pockets. These pockets then become an area for more plaque and tartar to build up and the problem can progress even further, resulting in teeth becoming loose.
