Gum Disease Symptoms

Gum Disease SymptomsIn its earliest stages, gum disease can exhibit minimal symptoms, allowing undiagnosed periodontal disease to become progressively worse. There are warning signs that patients should be aware of, however. The following are some of gum disease symptoms:

  • Gum tissue that is red, swollen, or extremely painful
  • Presence of blood during brushing, flossing, or even when eating
  • Gum recession, leading to teeth appearing disproportionately long
  • Teeth that are loose or have become separated
  • Discharge from gums and teeth
  • Sores within the oral cavity
  • Persistently bad breath
  • A change in the way teeth fit together when biting

Periodontal disease is a common oral health issue that affects many adults. Serious infection, tooth loss, bone deterioration, including gingival recession are all results of untreated gum disease. Be sure to protect smiles with impeccable oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Regular visits to the dentist for dental examinations will allow oral health complications to be detected at an early stage. Professional cleanings are also essential in maintaining periodontal health.
