When the gums become infected, healthy tissue is slowly consumed by bacteria, resulting in the recession of the gums and in advanced stages of gum disease, eventual loss of teeth. Symptoms include painful gums, receding gums, bleeding gums, chronic halitosis (bad breath), and lost teeth. Gum disease treatments generally do one of a few things for patients, depending on what stage of gum disease recovery they are in and which symptoms they exhibit.
