Periodontal (gum) disease is caused by bacteria from the plaque and tartar that accumulate on your teeth. Flossing and brushing help get rid of plaque, but plaque that is not removed can become more harmful. The bacteria can cause red, swollen, and bleeding gums, and periodontal disease may lead to damage and loss of the teeth, gum tissue, and supporting bone. In severe cases, untreated periodontal disease may contribute to several serious medical conditions, including:

  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy complications
