Common Signs of Gum Disease

Anyone, no matter what their age, can experience gum disease. However, it is typically considered an adult condition. If it is detected in the earliest stages, it is easily treated and in many cases can be reversed. The following are some of the most common symptoms. If you have any of these, schedule an appointment with your dentist.

  • Gums become red, swollen, tender or puffy
  • Gums start to bleed when you are flossing or brushing
  • Gums start to recede – your teeth can even look taller
  • Gums that start to separate from the teeth
  • Your teeth feel different when you bite down
  • Pus between the teeth and gums
  • Bad breath that doesn’t go away
  • Bad taste in your mouth

Treatment for Gum Disease

Early on, gum disease can be reversed with good oral habits like brushing and flossing. Regular brushing and flossing reduce plaque build up which can lead to gum disease. Your dentist can also remove plaque through regular cleanings. A dental professional can scale your teeth to get rid of tartar. If the condition is severe, the dentist can perform a root planing. This procedure smooths out irregular places on the roots so plaque cannot build up in those areas.
