Could You Have Aggressive Periodontitis?

Posted on 5/10/2021 by Todd Jorgenson
Could You Have Aggressive Periodontitis?Periodontitis can take various forms, depending on the disease's progression, the age of the patient, and the symptoms. Aggressive periodontitis is a type of advanced gum disease that happens to young patients.

What Is Aggressive Periodontitis?


As the name suggests, aggressive periodontitis references a periodontal disease that is aggressive and rapid in nature. It usually affects younger patients who are under the age of 30. The severity of the disease seems to be an over-reaction to minimum plaque build-up and may end in early tooth loss. The term replaces the former description of early-onset periodontitis.

Subclasses of the Disease


Aggressive periodontitis is sub-classified as generalized aggressive periodontitis or localized aggressive periodontitis. The cause of the disease is currently unknown. However, specific bacterial pathogens, robust immune responses, and genetic factors have been factored into the disease's development.

Diagnosing the Disease


We encourage everyone—young and old—to receive a comprehensive periodontal evaluation each year to determine if they have any periodontal abnormalities and to catch gum disease early. If you believe you have any form of gum disease, you need to schedule an appointment with our office to confirm a diagnosis for treatment.

A diagnosis is made during a CPE by using a probe that measures the sulcus (space or pocket) between the gums and tooth. The depth of a healthy pocket measures 3 millimeters or less and will not bleed. Therefore, the probe is used to assess pocket depth to find out how to proceed with treatment and determine the severity of gingivitis or periodontitis.
