Signs & Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Healthy gums have a pink and firm appearance, do not bleed easily, and fit snugly around the root of your teeth. In mild cases, gum disease usually does not cause pain and is hence difficult to appreciate the disease. As the disease progresses patients may develop signs and symptoms of gingivitis which may include:

  • Swollen, tender and red gums
  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing

If gingivitis develops into periodontitis (affects the tissues that support the teeth resulting in loss of bone and teeth), you may also have the following symptoms:

  • Receding gum line that may pull away from the teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Pus between your teeth and gums
  • Change in bite pattern
  • Loosening of the teeth
