Gum disease can be preventable, and even reversible in the early stages, by regularly brushing teeth, flossing and having routine dental check ups.
Here are some of the warning signs of gum disease:
• Red or swollen gums
• Tender or bleeding gums
• Bad breath that won’t go away
• Sensitive teeth
• Gums that are pulling away from the teeth
• Painful chewing
• Loose teeth
If you are concerned or believe that you may have gum disease, make an appointment to come in for an evaluation.
