Periodontitis: From Plaque to Tooth Loss: 

Periodontitis : From Plaque to Tooth Loss

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Healthy gums and bone hold the tooth firmly in place.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Plaque buildup irritates the gums, and they become inflamed. In time, the gums pull away from the tooth, creating a pocket that fills with more plaque.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

The pockets get deeper, and the plaque hardens into tartar. More plaque accumulates on top.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Tartar moves down to the root of the tooth and eventually destroys the bone supporting the tooth. Without this support, the tooth loosens and falls out.
