If not removed regularly it can take the form of tartar often causing severe damage to the gums and the bones. These are generally characterized by swollen and bleeding gums. Beyond oral problems periodontal diseases can also lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, strokes and also increase risks for pregnant women.
