Warning Signs Of Chronic Periodontitis

Chronic Periodontits

Periodontal disease affects the thin crevice between the gums and teeth called the sulcus. This causes the attachment of the tooth and nearby tissue to disintegrate, causing a pocket that becomes deeper as the disease worsens.

The American Dental Association says warning signs of gum disease include:

  • Bleeding that’s easily triggered from the gums.
  • Gums that are sore or tender, swollen or red.
  • Gums that recede from the teeth.
  • Frequent bad taste or bad breath.
  • Permanent teeth that feel loose or feel like they’re separating from the gums.
  • Changes in alignment of the teeth or dentures.
