Being aware of gum disease is one of the first steps to receiving the necessary treatment. Because it is a progressive disease, it can advance over a period of many stages and can continue to progress throughout several years. The sooner you have it checked, the better off your smile will be in terms of receiving the necessary care. If you don’t already do so, make sure you’re visiting your dentist or endodontist for routine examinations of your oral health.

One of the most highly known symptoms of gum disease occurs with gum recession. If it appears your gum tissue is slowly pulling back away from your teeth and exposing more surface area of a tooth, it could be an indication of gum disease. It’s often possible to notice gum recession if your teeth appear longer. Furthermore, if you are having any sensations including bleeding gums or pus or sores around teeth, it is important to visit dentist to determine if gum disease is present.

In situations where halitosis continues to return even after cleaning out your mouth, it could be linked to a gum tissue infection. Further signs and symptoms of gum tissue infections include teeth that are loose or extra movable, issues when chewing foods including painful sensations and uncharacteristic gums including excessive redness or sensitivity.
