Warning Signs of Gum Disease

We are often asked what are the main signs of gum disease and related problems. To help you understand this better, we have listed some of the most common signs.

  1. Gums that have turned red and are swollen. Typically, they will also bleed after brushing your teeth or flossing. 

  2. You have bad breath. 

  3. There is pus between your teeth and gums. 

  4. Your gums have receded and expose the roots of your teeth, thereby making them loose. 

  5. Your teeth have moved and have created spaces. 

  6. Your teeth look longer than they used to. 

Please note that there could be other symptoms as well. Thus, it is always important for you to have periodic dental examinations.
