This video outlines the stages of gum disease , starting with gingivitis, in which the gums are swollen and may bleed easily. The second stage, periodontitis, is characterized by the gums pulling away from the teeth. This is followed by advanced periodontitis, during which the fibers holding the teeth in place are destroyed, leading to tooth loss. Learn more by watching this entire video.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, but it often goes largely ignored and untreated.
