Gum disease is a serious and dangerous dental issue that can affect your entire body, so if you think you have gum disease, it’s important to call our office and schedule an appointment. You can also try to identify the symptoms of gum disease, which are:

– Red gums (Gums that are a darker color than usual. Your gums should be a light or dark pink color)

– Swollen gums (Gums that are inflamed and tender. Your gums should have a flat, tight appearance)

– Bleeding gums (Gums that bleed when you brush and floss your teeth and even when you eat. Many people believe bleeding gums is normal and natural, but it is not)

– Receding gums (Gums that pull away from the teeth and expose the roots of the teeth. Your gums should hug the teeth tightly and completely cover the roots)
