What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is an inflammatory condition that affects over 80% of Americans in some form or another. While the symptoms can be mild in the beginning, if left untreated, gum disease can gradually progress until it causes serious and life threatening issues. The good news, however, is that these serious consequences can be reduced by good dental hygiene and regular professional cleanings at Brookside Dental.
Some common signs of gum disease include:
- Sensitive gums that bleed easily
- Swollen gums or gum tenderness
- Teeth that feel loose in your mouth
- Teeth that appear longer because the gums have started receding
- Bad breath or halitosis
- Pus between your gums and teeth
If you experience any of these symptoms, you may want to come into our office for periodontal disease diagnosis and treatment.
