What are the negative consequences of neglected oral hygiene?
Neglected oral hygiene can lead to various dental problems that may cause discomfort or pain. While regular at-home oral care and semi-annual professional dental cleanings (unfortunately, tartar cannot be effectively removed with just at-home care) significantly help prevent these issues, they can still occur. One common problem is gum inflammation, or gingivitis, caused by bacteria found in tartar. Symptoms may include bad breath and bleeding gums. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to gum disease, leading to bone loss and, over time, loosening and loss of teeth (periodontal disease).
