Gum disease – periodontitis and gingivitis
Periodontics is a specialist field of dentistry concerned with the health of the gum and bone tissue surrounding your teeth. Periodontal disease (gum disease) is usually a slow progressing disease and most people are not aware that they have it. The most obvious signs of periodontal disease are:
- Bleeding gums
- Bad breath
- Bad taste
- Red or swollen gums
- Loose teeth
- Receding gums
Inflammation of the gums presents itself in many different forms, ranging from very mild (gingivitis) to severe (periodontitis) with varying levels of soft tissue destruction leading to possible tooth loss.
