Early Concerns of Gum Disease You Need to Talk to Us About
Dec 10, 2017
Periodontitis or gum disease is a serious condition that not only affects your overall health but your confidence as well. When a stream of symptoms appearing, it is best to have it checked by our professional dentists so you can catch it in its progressive stage.
Some periodontal conditions are reversible when caught in time and can give you a better way of dealing with the problem
Bad Breath That Won’t Go Away
Most of the foods we eat contain sugar, which is broken down by bad bacteria in the mouth. They secrete acid and sulfur compounds that lead to bad breath. Although brushing removes acid buildup, some people experience having bad breaths despite constant brushing. When this happens, it is a possible sign of an impending periodontal disorder that needs to be quickly diagnosed.
Constant bad breath is a chronic disease called halitosis. This may also be a symptom of an underlying health problem. Bad breath and poor oral hygiene leads to plaque buildup irritating the gums and causing infections.
Tender, Swollen, and Bleeding Gums that Lead to Painful Chewing and Loose Teeth
A bleeding, tender, and swollen gum can be caused by several gum problems. Gingivitis, periodontitis, or any chronic gum infection leads to the manifestation of these symptoms. Not only do they indicate an underlying problem, but they can also be distracting. A bleeding or swollen gum can be painful which disrupts your daily activities.
Experiencing a tooth problem is part of growing, especially with developing children, but it is never part of normal living during adulthood. If you are experiencing severe symptoms that affect your daily life, having your teeth checked by our professionals will help you have a healthier smile.
