Did you know that the most prevalent cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing is the key to healthy gums.
The good news is that gum disease is easy to treat when detected early! That is why regular check-ups with your dentist are essential. Our team at Oceanside Dental Excellence in Oceanside, California would be honored to provide you and your family with excellent general and cosmetic dentistry services, including gum disease treatment.
Here are some of the key warning signs for gum disease that you should be looking for.
1. Gums that bleed easily
2. Gums that are tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
3. A bite that changes suddenly so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly
4. Receding gums
5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
6. Loose or separating teeth
If you are experiencing these symptoms, it’s time for you to talk to a dentist before they worsen.
