Periodontal disease is broken up into four separate stages: gingivitis, slight periodontal disease, moderate periodontal disease, and advanced periodontal disease. Gingivitis. Gingivitis is the only stage of periodontal disease that is reversible as it has not yet had time to attack the bones.
Periodontitis – the advanced stage of gum disease. These images are just to show you how gum disease actually looks like. Luckily, there are available restorative and regenerative techniques to treat severe gum disease and promote healthy gums.
Early periodontal disease may be characterized by swelling and redness of the gums and early horizontal bone loss, but is usually not associated with loss of gum tissues, or gum recession. Early horizontal bone loss around the teeth can be seen on the x-rays below. Typical gum pocket depths would be 4-5mm.Stages Of Periodontitis Image Diagram - Chart - diagrams and charts with labels.
