In brief: Bleeding

Some signs of perio disease include bleeding gums, inflammation, bone loss, recession, pocketing around the tooth (measured in 6 places on each tooth), and in more severe cases, sometimes pus, loose teeth, bad breath, sometimes heavy tartar build up, gums pulling down to expose the roots, painful gums.

tender and bleeding gums, loose teeth.
Sensitive teeth and receding gums. See your dentist if you suspect you have gum disease because the sooner you treat it the better.

In brief: Bleeding

In the early stages, there may be no symptoms (maybe just bleeding on brushing/flossing).
In the later stages teeth feel loose, they might change position, sometimes bad breath, The only way to catch it in the early stages it for a dentist/hygeinist to measure the space around your teeth by probing.
