Stages of Periodontal Disease
Gingivitis: This first stage often goes unnoticed since few symptoms may appear. While some patients do report noticing red or swollen gums, it is often underdiagnosed or left untreated since it rarely presents with uncomfortable symptoms like tooth and gum pain.
Periodontitis: A more severe form of gum disease, periodontitis requires a more aggressive treatment approach to prevent further loss of gums and teeth. Symptoms of periodontitis may include painful chewing, swollen or tender gums, sensitive teeth and more.
