Are you Seeing Signs of Gum Disease?

For many people, gum disease is a silent stalker that strikes without pain or problem. That’s why you need to know how to spot its symptoms to prevent major dental damage.

Indications of Inflammation – A glimpse of your gums can give away the truth about your teeth. Check for swelling, redness, and tenderness around your gums. All of these are signs of gum disease.

A Sensitive Situation – Teeth that become extremely sensitive to hot, cold, sweet, or sour sensations signal the need to see the dentist.

Bad Bleeding – If you notice that gums bleed easily when you’re brushing or flossing your teeth, see an affordable dentist immediately to detect if you have gum disease or the more severe stage of periodontal disease.

Pain Proves a Problem – Experiencing either sharp or dull pains in your gums, especially when chewing foods, can indicate gum disease.

Recession is a Confession – Have your gums started pulling away from your teeth? This indicates that your gums are receding, which may be caused by gum disease.

Sudden Shifts – If you notice your teeth are moving, then you may be moving toward gum disease. Any change in the spacing or alignment of your teeth can be a clear clue.

Let Loose Teeth be a Warning – Gum disease that’s not treated can move into the bones and develop into periodontal disease. This can cause major bone loss, which often leads to loose teeth. If you see an affordable dentist immediately, they can save you the cost of lost teeth.
