Our in-house Periodontists can assess your needs and create a personalized plan for patients with various stages of gum disease.

What are the stages of gum disease?

  1. Gingivitis
    Gingivitis is the first stage of the disease. The gums are irritated by plaque and its toxin by-products, causing inflammation and potential bleeding.
  2. Periodontitis
    As calculus and plaque continue to build up, the gums will start to recede. Bacteria and pus will begin to fill the pockets between your gums and teeth. This can cause moderate bone loss.
  3. Advanced Periodontitis
    Teeth lose more support as the gums, bone, and periodontal ligament continue to deteriorate.

  • Bleeding gums
  • Loose teeth
