Healthy Gums No Disease Your teeth are held in place by gums, bone and connective tissues. Your gums hug your teeth tightly and there is little or no buildup of plaque and tartar on them. Periodontitis In time, as plaque and tartar build up where your teeth and gums meet, the gum tissues and bone around your teeth begin to break down. Periodontitis affects about 42% of adults over age 30 in the United States. Gingivitis The bacteria in plaque make your gums red, tender and swollen. Your gums might bleed at this stage. You also can have gingivitis and not notice any of these signs. Gum disease at this stage is usually reversible and can be treated by a dentist or dental hygienist during a regular cleaning and with daily brushing and flossing. Advanced Periodontitis Your teeth may become loose and fall out or need to be removed by your dentist. This stage is very serious and may require surgical treatment. 4 5 Stages of Periodontal Disease Periodontal disease can get worse if it’s left untreated. It can lead to serious infection, bone loss and you may even lose teeth. Inflamed gums Tartar Gums Ligament Bone Pus Image ©Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Image ©Elsevier Inc.
