Compared to other diseases, periodontitis is usually recognised relatively late. This is due to the fact that periodontitis often develops slowly and gradually without pain, and is therefore only perceived by the affected person at an advanced stage. However, there are some warning signs that may indicate the presence of the disease. Most patients perceive regular bleeding gums, e.g. while brushing their teeth as a first sign of periodontal disease. However, by this time, destruction of the periodontium has often progressed so far that irreversible damage has occurred. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the body’s warning signs at an early stage in order to prevent progression of the disease in good time.

For example,

  • reddened, swollen and sensitive gums,
  • receding gums ("black triangles") between the teeth,
  • bleeding gums,
  • bad breath,
  • loose teeth and
  • the formation of gaps between teeth

may all indicate the presence of periodontitis.
