At first, you won’t know that you have gum disease. This is one reason that three-month dental cleanings and exams are so important. Your hygienist will notice the infection before you can! As gum disease progresses from gingivitis to periodontitis, you might notice your gums turning bright red instead of remaining their normal pink. You might also notice bad breath, loose teeth, a changing bite, or even the loss of teeth.
The only sure way to know that you have gum disease is to visit the office and have a thorough exam completed. If caught early, a professional cleaning is enough to remove the infection. We can then work with you to prevent further problems from occurring.
