Periodontal disease starts with inflammation of gums which means that you’ll have bad breath,bleeding gums and small gingival pockets 2-4 milimeters. What you need to do is professional cleaning of your teeth, removing tartar and dental plaque,at least 2 times a year.
This way you have a chance to stop the process from going further on the next stage. If you don’t take these symptoms seriously, you’ll enter in the second stage, early periodontitis. Typical signs of this stage are receding gums, inflammation of gums that result with bleeding during brushing or flossing your teeth and gingival pockets with depth between 4-5 milimeters. Keeping your oral hygiene is highly recommend as well as cleaning of gingival pockets to enable gums to reattach on the tooth surface. The next stage of ignoring your problem, will bring irreversible consequences that finally will result with loosing your teeth one by one!
The bleeding in this stage is followed by pain and severe infections,bone loss occurs because the support system between the teeth and jawbone is weak, gingival pockets have depth more than 7 milimeters and with these active inflammation symptoms and high bacterial level,your teeth become focus of infections that could be easily transmitted through the bloodstream in the whole body, causing heart disease, diabetes, respiratory diseases and even cancer.
