What are common signs and symptoms of periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is often silent, meaning symptoms – particularly pain – may not appear until an advanced stage of the disease. However, you should be aware of the signs and symptoms, which include:

· Red, swollen or tender gums or other pain in your mouth
· Bleeding while brushing, flossing, or when eating certain foods
· Gums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth, causing the teeth to look longer than before
· Loose or separating teeth
· Pus between your gums and teeth
· Sores in your mouth
· Persistent bad breath
· A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
· A change in the fit of partial dentures
