Aggressive periodontitis involves rapid periodontal destruction in otherwise healthy individuals - generally younger patients, though older individuals may also be affected. If it is not diagnosed early and treated appropriately, generalized aggressive periodontitis can lead to early tooth loss. The clinical appearance and pattern of destruction may vary; the most common complaints are recently noticed flaring, progressive spacing, and mobility of the anterior teeth. Such an occurrence not only affects the patient's function and esthetics, but can also be detrimental to self-esteem.
