Instead of types, I would rather describe them as two sequential stages of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease in the dental terminology. There are mainly two forms of gum disease – Gingivitis and Periodontitis. If not cured, Gingivitis can lead to its successor periodontal disease known as Periodontitis, which can cause tooth loss and other oral health problems.
