Symptoms of Gum Disease

In this video, Dr. Amelia Aristodemo illustrates the telltale signs of periodontal disease and the importance of prompt care.

Some signs and symptoms of gum disease include:

1. Red, swollen, and tender gums
2. Bleeding while brushing or flossing
3. Receding gums, causing teeth to appear longer
4. Loose or separated teeth
5. Persistent bad breath
6. Pus between the teeth and gums
7. Changes in your bite or the fit of your dentures

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s essential to seek prompt dental care. Early detection and treatment of gum disease are crucial for preventing further damage and preserving your oral health.

We encourage you to schedule a comprehensive exam at our office, where we can evaluate the health of your gums and provide appropriate treatment to prevent or manage gum disease. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to set up an appointment. Thank you for prioritizing your oral health.
