Periodontitis is inflammation of the gums and organs. Both tooth loss and bone loss occur. Bacteria in the gums later reach the bone, the bone becomes infected and the tooth moves.
Sometimes it is necessary to pull out a tooth that has lost bone even if it is not decayed. Bacteria adhering to the teeth form dental plaque and tartar.
It may be caused by other illnesses or by certain medicines you are using. A prosthesis or occupational occlusion can also cause inflammation of the gums
