Warning signs

The warning signs are:

  • Longer teeth due to receding gums.
  • Tooth movement, due to the reabsorption of bone around the teeth. The final result is tooth loss.
  • Unpleasant odour and taste in the mouth produced by due to waste produced by the metabolism of bacterial plaque and tartar.
  • The shifting of teeth, due to the loss of supporting tissue that facilitates their movement. This causes the malpositioning of teeth or the widening of spaces between the teeth.

Periodontal disease has consequences for the health, functioning and aesthetics of the teeth and gums. Recovery from this process and from its consequences will be better and more effective the earlier it is detected and treated.
