Do I have gum disease?
Gum disease is surprisingly very common. Thankfully, the early stages of it are easily reversible. Unfortunately, the signs of it can be quite subtle and you may be unaware you have it. The latter stages of gum disease are pretty hard to miss, but this is mostly because its effects can be so disastrous.
Some symptoms of gum disease include:
-Bad breath that won’t go away
-Red or swollen gums
-Tender or bleeding gums
-Loose or separating teeth
-Painful chewing or swallowing
Regular dental visits are really important to monitor the health of your gums. Thankfully, our dentists and hygienists are great at spotting the signs of gum disease and are more than capable of treating them!
