Periodontitis involves a continuing degradation of the bone around the teeth that can lead to periodontal disease and tooth loss if left untreated. The disease is caused by bacteria that adhere to and grow on the surfaces of the teeth (plaque or biofilm / microbiological plaque), especially in the areas below the gumline. The inflammation leads to bone and connective tissue breaks down, dental bracket deteriorate. In general terms, loss of bone level not recover, but the disease can be prevented if you take away that which causes the inflammation, ie bacteria.
