Gum Disease Symptoms

Gum Disease SymptomsGum disease symptoms often go undetected. Many patients may not be aware of their periodontal condition until their gum disease has progressed into the advanced stages. Patients should be aware of the signs and symptoms of gum disease. Individuals who are experiencing the following may have developed gum disease:

  • Gums that are red, swollen, or tender
  • Bleeding during brushing, flossing, or when consuming rigid foods
  • Gums that have begun to regress from teeth, lending the appearance of elongated teeth
  • Teeth that have become separated or loose
  • Infection or pus in between gums and teeth
  • Sores in mouth
  • Persistently unpleasant breath
  • Shift of occlusion
  • Ill-fitting dental appliances

Patients who have any of the symptoms listed above are urged to visit our dentist for a Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation immediately. The treatment of gum disease is necessary in order to halt the progression of periodontal disease. When gum disease is left untreated, tooth loss, bone degeneration, and tissue resorption can occur.
