Diagnosis of Gum Disease

Gum disease often goes unnoticed. Warning signs that you may have gum disease include:

  • Red, tender, swollen gums.
  • Bleeding gums while brushing or flossing.
  • Gums that seem to be pulling from your teeth.
  • Chronic bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth.
  • Teeth that are loose or separating from each other.

While regular dental exams and cleanings are important, you can play a major role in preventing gum disease every day. The best way to be proactive in maintaining your oral and overall health is by going for regular check-ups, getting professional cleanings and regular brushing and flossing.
