Your smile can be compromised by numerous oral ailments associated with gum tissue infection. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a condition in which the gum tissue in a person’s mouth becomes infected. There are numerous causes of gum disease, as well as numerous symptoms that become present. Inspect your mouth regularly to help determine if gum disease is present in your smile.
Have you ever had your gums bleed at any point in time in your life, particularly during meal time or while brushing and flossing? If so, it could be an indication that the gum tissue in your mouth is infected and has developed gum disease. Other common symptoms for gum disease include the recurrence of bad breath.
If you notice any inflammation or swelling of your gums, or if they appear tender or feel extra sensitive, visit our doctor for a gum disease examination. Other common symptoms of gum disease include the presence of pus and sores between your teeth and gums, as well as the presence of gum recession.
