What happens if tartar is not removed? Tartar then begins to build up under the gums and separates the gums from the teeth to form bacterial growth. This is the beginning of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can be very painful and can lead to loose teeth, abscesses and bone infection. As bacterial growth continues to increase, the bacteria may enter the bloodstream. This can cause infection of the heart valves liver and kidneys.
