The Troubling Traits of Gum Disease

dca-blog-gum-disease_1200x630

You may have gum disease or periodontal disease and not even know it. Discover the worrisome warning signs so you know when to seek a solution.

Gum Grief – Your gums can reveal a lot about your dental health. Check for swelling, redness, and tenderness around your gums. All of these are signs of gum disease.

Bleeding Gums– 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.

The Oppression of Recession – Gums can start to recede away from the base of the teeth when they’re being afflicted by dental disease.

The Sting of Sensitivity – Teeth that become extremely sensitive to hot, cold, sweet, or sour sensations signal the need to see the dentist.

Pain Indicates a Problem – Pain is never normal. Any persistent pain in your gums, especially when eating and during dental care, may be a glimpse of gum disease.

Transitions in Teeth – 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.

Look for Loose Teeth – Gum disease left untreated 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 help save you from the cost of lost teeth.
