Because other dental problems can lead to similar symptoms in your dog, excluding them before establishing a diagnosis of periodontitis is important.

  • Gingivitis is a precursor to periodontitis and looks similar, but does not have deep pockets.

  • Endodontic lesions, which can be mixed with or can be precipitated from periodontal lesions, may be present.

  • Periapical (surrounding the tooth) abscesses, fractured teeth, and any other cause of tooth pain may be present.

  • Fractured mandible, secondary to periodontal disease, may be present.
