Signs of Periodontitis

Healthy gum tissue completely fills the interdental passages between teeth and does not bleed when touched. If infected, it swells up and darkens. Even touching it lightly with floss or a toothbrush will cause bleeding.

Bad taste in the mouth or bad breath are often caused by infected gums or periodontitis.

In its advanced stage, the teeth lose their hold and change their position. They turn, tilt or appear longer.

If you notice any of the following changes, you should have your gums checked.

  • Bleeding
  • Swelling at the gumline
  • Darker coloration at the gumline
  • Bad taste
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
