There are three stages of gum (periodontal) disease: gingivitis, periodontitis and advanced periodontitis.
The severity of gum disease can vary from person to person, depending on how long the infection has been present and if any forms of treatment have been performed. While it is important to visit a periodontist no matter the severity, seeking treatment as early as possible can help prevent permanent damage and restore your health.
