How does Gum disease start and progress?

It starts due to bacteria, mucus and particles making sticky colourless image on your teeth, called as plaque. If plaque is not deleted by daily brushing and flossing, it can harden to form a tartar. This tartar is continuously coated with plaque. The issue with tartar is that it can’t be deleted through normal brushing. 

Indeed, existence of tartar makes it difficult to brush and floss effectively. The plaque harbours acid makes bacteria which builds havoc on your gums and teeth. So, it is easier for the acids released by bacteria in your mouth to breaking down the tooth enamel. The normal form of gum disease is called as gingivitis, and the symptoms are swollen and inflamed gums, sometimes bleeding when brushing your teeth. If not treated, gingivitis can lead to serious condition called periodontitis, where pockets between the tooth and the gums are there is bone loss around the tooth. Gum disease often starts in regions of the mouth that are difficult to clean, like your back teeth, along the gum lines, and where there’s been other dental work.
