Receding gums and bone loss cause the formation of "periodontal pockets," in the gums that reach below the gum line. The bacteria from plaque produce toxins that collect in these periodontal pockets. As plaque hardens it pushes downward into the gum pocket and eventually reaches the surrounding bone. The damage to the surrounding bone is often irreversible. And, as bone loss progresses, neighboring teeth may also lose support, become loose and fall out. Bone loss is a major problem for dental patients who have had teeth extracted. After an extraction, the bone of the jaw will continuously wear away, gradually causing the face to look older.
