In brief: Depends

Worse case possibilities can be loss of teeth due to periodontal disease or decay.

In brief: Decay, bone loss

Rampant decay and possible bone loss around the teeth.
Please remember that tooth decay and gum disease are silent until extensive damage is done. When the patient notices or feels something, then it is too late for just a filling or a good cleansing. That is why dentist recommend 6 month checkups. We can find dental disease when it is in its early stages and we can easily fix it.
