Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Even in the late stage periodontal disease you may experience few obvious symptoms as the symptoms are often subtle.  However, the most common symptoms include:

  • Gums that bleed during and after tooth brushing
    Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth.
    Receding gums
  • Formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Changes in the way teeth fit together upon biting down (your occlusion)
