Spotting the Signs of Gum Disease

January 2nd, 2015 → 8:51 pm @

Gum disease is something your dentist looks for at every dental appointment you have. But, you can check for this potentially devastating periodontal disease at home. By knowing the symptoms, you can take a proactive part in your oral health—and your overall well-being.

Bleeding gums, sensitivity, and swelling are common signs of gum disease. Discoloration around the teeth, loosening of the teeth, and sores or pus around teeth are also warning signs. If you have dentures or partials, a change in the way they fit can signal gum disease. Any of these symptoms mean you need to see your dentist as soon as possible for an assessment and treatment.
