    If you have any of the following warning signs or symptoms please go and visit your dentist who will determine if you have periodontal disease:

    • Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth or when you eat hard food.
    • Spaces developing between your teeth.
    • Gums that feel swollen or tender.
    • Gums that are receding (pulling back from your teeth) or teeth that appear longer than before.
    • Persistent bad breath.
    • Pus between your teeth and gums.
    • Changes in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
    • Sores in your mouth.

    How can I have gum disease if my gums don’t hurt?

    Gum disease rarely hurts. In fact, sometimes the only sign of gum disease is when a patient notices a tooth has become loose or a bad taste develops in their mouth. At that point, it may be too late to save the tooth. Regular cleanings and check-ups are the key to discover these problems before they get too bad.
