Treatments for Periodontitis and Other Issues of the Gums
How Do I Know If I Have Periodontitis (Gum Disease)?
Gum disease can sneak up on you if you do not know the signs. Gum disease typically takes two forms depending on the severity. Less severe gum disease is known as gingivitis, which only affects the gums, while more severe gum disease, periodontitis, is an infection that affects the jawbone as well. Some signs that you may have gum disease include the following:
- Swollen gums
- Red gums
- Bleeding gums
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Shrinking gums
