Danger Zone! 5 Signs Of Gum Disease

dental payment plans Cedar Hills

Here is some vital news for anyone who cares about their dental health: periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a primary cause of tooth loss among adults. There is also evidence that it is linked to heart disease. Fortunately, this problem is easy to treat if it is found in the early stages.

What warning signs should you be looking for?

  1. Gums that bleed commonly
  2. Gums that appear tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  3. Your bite changes or your teeth suddenly don't seem to fit together
  4. Gums that are loosening from the teeth
  5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath

Hopefully, you are not noticing any of these things. If you are not removing plaque between your teeth, however, your gums are at risk. Brushing alone is not sufficient—make sure you floss daily.

Regular check-ups with your dentist is another vital weapon in the fight against gum disease.
