The symptoms of periodontitis include:

1.gum inflammation, bleeding, and pain. The gums may become red, swollen, and tender, and may bleed easily. When brushing, eating, or using floss, the gums may be sensitive and painful.

2.tooth loosening. If not treated promptly, periodontitis can cause destruction of the bone around the teeth, resulting in tooth loosening. The degree of tooth loosening depends on the severity of the inflammation and destruction.

3.gum recession. Long-term periodontitis can cause gum tissue to recede, resulting in exposed roots and sensitive teeth.

4.bad breath. Periodontitis can cause bacteria to grow in the mouth, producing an unpleasant odor that leads to bad breath.

5.tooth displacement. Periodontitis can cause teeth to move within the jawbone, resulting in changes in tooth position.

6.periodontal pain. Some patients may experience pain or discomfort around the teeth, and sometimes even tooth loosening.

If you have any of the above symptoms, especially gum bleeding and tooth loosening, it is important to seek prompt dental examination and treatment.
