Gum disease is also called gingivitis or periodontitis. Gingivitis is
a gum disease that affects the soft tissue surrounding your teeth.
Periodontitis is a severe gum infection that affects the soft tissues of
the teeth. If it is left untreated, it can even break the bones that
support your teeth. Periodontitis can cause teeth to get loose or cause
tooth loss. Some of the symptoms of gum disease are bleeding gums, bad
breath, loose teeth, swollen and painful gums, painful chewing, and gums
are that moving away from your teeth.
4 Stages of gum diseases
There are four general phases of gum disease. Gingivitis may lead to a more severe condition of periodontitis if left untreated.
- Stage 1: Gingivitis is the first step of gum disease, and its symptoms include swollen or red gums that can bleed when brushed.
- Stage 2: A minor loss of bone supporting the teeth occurs in early periodontitis, although other signs may not be readily detected.
- Stage 3: More bone and gum tissues are lost in mild periodontitis, and teeth may also be loosened.
- Stage 4: Advanced periodontitis is the most severe stage of the disease. Symptoms become more serious. Teeth may become very loose, and chewing and biting may hurt. In general, intensive dental care is needed to try to repair the harm caused by advanced periodontitis.
