Periodontal Disease Symptoms

Posted .

Are you nervous that you have fallen victim to periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease? If so, then you need to call Bellaire Dental Excellence and schedule an appointment. This is important because gum disease is a dangerous dental issue that can harm your smile, oral health, and entire body. So, make sure to schedule an appointment today. To help you have a better idea of if you have gum disease or not, our dentist, Dr. Kevin M. Altieri, encourages you to look for the symptoms, which are:

– Red gums (Gums that are a red color. This means they are darker than they should be. Healthy gums are a light or dark pink color)

– Swollen gums (Gums that have a lumpy, inflamed, and bulging appearance. Healthy gums should be tight and flat against the mouth)

– Bleeding gums (Gums that bleed occasionally, especially while brushing and flossing the teeth as well as eating. Healthy gums should never bleed)

– Receding gums (Gums that move away from the teeth because of irritation. The gums might even expose the tooth roots. Healthy gums stay close against the teeth and protect their roots)
