Gum disease occurs when the tissue around your teeth or implants becomes infected, causing inflammation and bone loss. Plaque-forming bacteria that build up on your teeth usually cause this swelling as it spreads below the gum line. This then leads to the loss of bone supporting the teeth and teeth becoming loose, eventually coming out as a result of weak support.
