The Truth About Tooth Loss

Shockingly, 3.5 billion people (45% of the world) grapple with oral diseases, predominantly in low and middle-income countries.*

Understanding The Reasons

If gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontal disease, impacting the supporting tissues and leading to bone destruction.


    • Early stage of gum disease
    • Redness, swelling and bleeding gums
    • Halitosis (bad-smelling breath)
    • Gum recession gingivitis
    • Increased interdental space

    • Plaque hardens and spread from the gum line to the root of the tooth
    • Gum recession and pocket formation (space created between the gum and teeth)
    • Food particles, bacteria, and plaque start accumulating within the periodontal pocket, precipitating an onset of infection

    • Red, swollen and bleeding gums
    • As your gums pull away, bacteria in the pocket around your teeth release harmful substances. This leads to more gum and bone loss, making your teeth shaky

    • Painful abscesses with halitosis (result from spread of infection beneath the gum)
    • The destruction of specialized fibers surrounding the teeth and bone results in the eventual loss of teeth
