Periodontal disease is a progressive condition with two main stages, including:
- Gingivitis - The mildest form of periodontal disease, gingivitis is generally indicated with red, swollen, or inflamed gums, along with bleeding while gently brushing or flossing. Although easily reversible, if left untreated, it can develop into periodontitis.
- Periodontitis. This more destructive stage is where gum tissue and bone are eaten away as a result of the immune system attacking the built-up bacteria on the teeth. As the gum line starts to recede and create infected pockets, severe periodontitis can result in tooth loss and more serious health conditions.
Risk Factors & Common Symptoms of Gum Disease
Gum disease can be caused by several factors such as poor hygiene habits, tobacco use, genetics, hormonal changes, medication use, substance abuse, and more.
Signs & symptoms include:
- Tender & bleeding gums
- Sensitive or aching teeth
- Receding gum line
- Chronic bad breath
- Changes to bite, teeth, or dental work
- Pus or sores in your mouth
