Recognizing Gum Disease Symptoms

Several health risks tend to arise when gum disease is affecting your mouth. If you are suffering from gum disease, you may have signs and indications in the form of abnormalities and irregularities with the look and feel of your gums. Rather than waiting for gum disease to progress to a more severe stage, make sure that any time you spot symptoms of gum disease, you visit your dentist so that appropriate treatments can be given.

If you are routinely suffering from gum disease, it may progress over a period of many years without you being aware of it. In order to effectively treat it, it first must be found. Fortunately, there are several symptoms and indications of gum disease that often arise even at its earliest ages such as gingivitis.

If you notice excessive swelling and inflammation with your gums, it could be a sign of an infection. Furthermore, if you notice that your gums are pulling back away from your teeth and exposing more of a tooth’s surface, gum disease may be the cause. Other common symptoms associated with gum disease include the frequent return of bad breath, teeth that are separating or moving around, painful sensations when chewing on food, a heightened sense of tooth sensitivity or teeth that are extra movable, the presence of pus or sores and tenderness when touching your gums. If you notice that you are suffering from any symptoms of gum disease, you will want to visit our office for a comprehensive exam and treatments if required.
