Often referred to as pyorrhea, it is a chronic condition that, if not treated in time by a doctor, can cause complete retraction of the gums and loss of bone support. This situation will cause the permanent loss of the tooth .
It is a particularly destructive variant of gingivitis that causes severe pain with spontaneous bleeding and loss of gum tissue. It is produced by a very aggressive bacterium (Treponema Vinzenti) that causes severe destruction in a short time. It is usually triggered by continual stress and poor hygiene (it was also called a trench mouth by soldiers on the battlefield).
