Gum disease starts when the teeth and gums have already undergone minor or major changes, as a result to the accumulation of plaque.

Unfortunately, when your oral hygiene measures are not enough to resolve the issue, accumulated plaque hardens to calculus or tartar and it disrupts the connection between the gums and teeth, destroys the periodontal fibers that supports it and even causes varying levels of bone loss.
