Periodontitis is an infection which damages the bone and tissue supporting the tooth. It occurs when pockets develop in your gums due to tartar and plaque buildup.

There are multiple types and stages of periodontitis:

  • Chronic Periodontitis – mostly affects older people. It occurs due to lack of oral hygiene, plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Aggressive Periodontitis – mostly found in kids and youths. It can cause problem with bone damage and loss of teeth.
  • Necrotizing Periodontitis – this is when gums and tooth support structure causes tissue death and serious infection due to lack of blood supply.

Some of the signs and symptoms of periodontitis are as follows:

  •          Bleeding of gums
  •          Mouth Ulcers
