Gum Disease. Is it treatable?

Is Gum Disease Treatable?

Gum disease is treatable, but it’s important to detect it early so that it can be stopped before it does irreversible damage. Here are some common symptoms of gum disease:

  • Gums that bleed easily or are tender.
  • Red or swollen gums.
  • Sensitive teeth.
  • Consistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth.
  • Pain when chewing.
  • Loose teeth or teeth that look like they’re separating from one another.
  • A receding gum line.
  • A change in jaw or teeth alignment.

If you have recently started new flossing routine, it is normal for gums to bleed a little. This should subside within a week or two. If the bleeding persists, contact your dentist. Gum are also more prone to tenderness or bleeding during pregnancy. If would you like any appointment with us, call st (281) 376 – 1101
