What Are The Stages Of Gum Disease?

Gum disease occurs in three stages, each one more severe and leading to an increase in permanent damage to your dental structures. For this reason, you need to seek out treatment as soon as you find out you have the condition.

  • Gingivitis: This is the first and most mild stage of gum disease, caused by the build-up of plaque at the gumline. Plaque releases toxins which leads to inflammation. A professional cleaning often removes the plaque, reversing the gingivitis. Symptoms of gingivitis include bad breath and mild bleeding from brushing and flossing.
  • Periodontitis: Left untreated, gingivitis will advance to periodontitis. The supporting structures in your mouth, including the bone and fibers that secure your teeth in place, will be permanently damaged. Symptoms of periodontitis include loosening teeth.
  • Advanced periodontitis: If advanced periodontitis is allowed to develop, your teeth and jaw will be irreparably damaged. Treatment options are still available, but it is unlikely that you will be able to save any of your natural teeth. At this stage, your teeth will be loose and shift in your jawbone due to the fibers and bone supporting them being destroyed.

What Treatment Options Are Available?

The treatment that you are offered for gum disease will depend on how advanced your condition is. Always seek treatment as soon as you find out that gum disease is affecting you, as this gives you the greatest chance of saving your teeth.

At Dixwell Dental, we can treat gingivitis and periodontitis with scaling and root planing, laser treatment, regenerative procedures, and bone grafting. For more information on any of these procedures and advice on how to proceed with treatment, never hesitate to call us.
