Stages of dental health



There are four stages of dental health and disease



Stage 1
Stage 1 Teeth
Stage 2
Stage 2 Teeth
These are healthy teeth and gums. There is minimal tartar on the surfaces of the teeth. Continued home care will help maintain this level of dental health. Bad breath announces the presence of bacteria that accumulates along the gumline, where you can see inflammation. A professional dental cleaning is needed to remove the plaque and prevent it from hardening into tartar.
Stage 3
Stage 3 Teeth
Stage 4
Stage 4 Teeth
Tartar encourages further bacterial growth, which can cause the gums to recede and pockets to develop. These pockets trap even more bacteria and the progressive infection weakens the tooth's root structure. Bone loss begins. Chronic infection is destroying the teeth, gums, and bone. Teeth that are loose most likely need to be extracted.
