Gum Problems? Visit a Periodontist TodayGum diseases seldom have early warning signs. Once they began spreading, you may start noticing some signs and symptoms that could suggest you have gum disease. The major signs of gum disease are noticing blood every time you brush your teeth. This could be a mild infection called gingivitis.

When you visit us without any delays we could help get rid of this problem a lot faster. If however you ignore this sign and the infection reaches your bone, it could result in a serious condition also known as periodontal disease. It is believed that patients who suffer from periodontal diseases are at higher risk of cancer, osteoporosis, pneumonia, and heart diseases.

Signs of Gum Diseases

While gum diseases may be a little difficult to notice. If you notice a sudden change in the color of your gums or if they feel sore, there is a chance you have gum disease. Gum diseases increase the bacteria that thrive in your mouth. This results in bad breath. If you suffer from gum diseases there is a high chance your breath smells bad.

Sensitivity Is the Key

Another common sign of gum disease is sensitivity. If you have ignored gum disease for a while, your gums start receding. This results in tooth sensitivity in the area. This means any time you have something hot or cold you feel a sharp piercing sensation.

If it has reached this stage then waste no time in contacting us. If you delay any further your tooth will start getting loose and eventually fall off. While treating gum disease may involve a longer procedure, we ensure we pick the most effective route to deep clean your entire mouth. This helps get rid of the infection as soon as possible. Even if there are no signs of gum disease, there is no reason why you should not get it checked by our professionals. Call us and book an appointment right away.
