Are you Fighting the Bite of Gum Disease?

Gum disease can be difficult to detect and you might not know you have it until it is discovered by a dentist. See how to spot its symptoms so you can get treatment to stop the trouble.

Red Flags – Any redness or swelling around the gums is often a clear clue of gum disease.

A Sensitive Situation – Many people feel the symptoms of gum disease before they ever see it. If your teeth become very sensitive to cold, hot, sour, or sweet sensations, then your teeth are telling you something.

Bleeding when Brushing – Gums that bleed easily during brushing and flossing are clearly not healthy. Visit an affordable dentist immediately to examine you for gum disease or the more advanced stage of periodontal disease.

Moving in a Bad Direction – If you notice your teeth are moving, then you may be moving toward gum disease. Changes in the spacing or alignment of your teeth can be a clear clue.

The Reality of Receded Gums – If your gums begin moving away from your teeth, then you’re dealing with a dental problem like gum disease.

Pain Points to a Problem – Healthy teeth don’t hurt, so having piercing or persistent pain around your teeth and gums can clearly indicate gum disease.

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