What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is an infection of the structures around the teeth, which include the gums, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone.

There are several stages of gum disease:


Gingivitis is the first stage of periodontal disease. Plaque and its toxin by-products irritate the gums, making them tender, inflamed, and likely to bleed.


Plaque hardens into tartar, and the gums can begin to recede from the teeth. Pockets form between the gums and teeth and become filled with bacteria and pus. The gums become inflamed and bleed easily. Slight to moderate bone loss may be present.

Advanced Periodontitis

The teeth lose more support as the gums, bone, and periodontal ligament continue to deteriorate. Without treatment, the affected teeth may become loose or even lost. Generalized moderate to severe bone loss may be present.

Periodontal disease can be diagnosed by your dentist or dental hygienist during a periodontal examination, a standard part of your regular dental check-up. Book an appointment with Harker, Chan & Associates today! Request Appointment
