Gum disease can affect your overall health.

Nearly half of American adults over the age of 30 have some form of periodontal diseases – what we commonly called gum disease. Left untreated, gum disease can make you lose your natural teeth. It starts as gingivitis, causing your gums to become red and swollen. As it progress, your gums will pull away from your teeth. You may lose bone and your teeth can become very loose.
It’s critical that you take care of your gums and seek treatment for periodontal disease.

Beware of these warnings signs of gum disease.

Your dentist can tell you if you have gum disease or gingivitis. Regular check-ups will help catch this disease early before it requires more serious treatment. If you have any of the following symptoms, please see your dentist. The sooner you treat any dental problem, the easier it is to resolve.

Here are eight symptoms of gum disease:

● Persistent bad breath or bad taste in your mouth
● Red, swollen gums, tender and/or bleeding gums
● Pain while chewing
● Loose teeth
● Sensitive teeth
● Gums that have pulled away from your teeth
● Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
● Any change in the fit of partial dentures
