Symptoms & Stages Of Gum Disease

The first stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Swollen, tender gum tissue
  • Gums that bleed when flossing or brushing
  • Slight gum recession
  • Bad breath

While gingivitis can be treated with proper oral hygiene, the condition is incurable once it has progressed.

Periodontitis is the next stage of gum disease. If you have advanced to this stage, your gums and the bone that supports your teeth may already be experiencing damage. While periodontitis cannot be cured, we offer many treatment options in our office to manage the condition and prevent further progression. The symptoms of periodontitis include:

  • Gums that are red, swollen, or bleed easily
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Painful chewing

The last stage of gum disease is advanced periodontitis. By this stage, your gums and jawbone may be severely damaged. Additionally, you may begin to lose teeth. The symptoms of advanced periodontitis include:

  • Extreme gum recession
  • Accumulation of pus along the gum line
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Tooth loss
