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.
