Plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth even if you brush and floss regularly. When they appear near or below where your gums meet your teeth, they start to irritate and damage your gums. This leads to gum disease. If ignored for too long, gum disease can lead to bleeding gums and even teeth falling out.
