Periodontal, or gum, disease has been linked to other medical conditions that can affect your overall health, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. When you visit our practice for your routine appointments, our dentist will carefully check your gums for any signs of gum disease. The color, texture, size, and shape of your gums will all be evaluated, along with any missing or loose teeth, bleeding that may occur during your examination, and any periodontal pockets that you may have.
Common signs of periodontal disease include:
- Unusually red gums
- Swollen gums
- Gums that are oddly shaped
- Gums that bleed easily
- Loose teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Teeth that appear too long (often caused by receding gums)
If you notice any symptoms of gum disease, please contact our office and make an appointment for a periodontal screening. If you do have gum disease, our dentist will work with you to determine a treatment plan that will help you regain healthy gums once again.
