What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an oral health condition that affects the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums, bone and ligaments. It is primarily caused by the accumulation of plaque — a sticky film of bacteria — on the teeth and along the gumline. When left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious complications, including tooth loss and systemic health issues. The early stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis and can often be successfully treated when diagnosed early. The more severe stage of gum disease is known as periodontitis and can cause much more severe damage to your oral health.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of gum disease is crucial for early intervention and effective treatment. Some common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen and tender gums
  • Bleeding gums, especially during brushing and flossing
  • Gum recession
  • Pockets between the teeth and gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Sores in the mouth or pus between the teeth
  • Changes in your bite or in the fit of oral appliances

The more severe stages of gum disease may also include tooth loss and bone loss.
