Due to severe oral health risks associated with any issues involving your gums, it is important to always make sure they are clean and cared for just as you would your normal teeth. Taking care of your gums is essential, as they are what is responsible for holding your teeth in place. If an infection to your gum tissue should arise, specifically in the form of gum disease, it can lead to gum destabilization and potentially cause massive tooth loss.
If your gum tissue is infected, there are numerous symptoms that can pop up from time to time to alert you of its presence. This can include the frequency of blood during brushing or flossing treatments. In addition, if you are bleeding while eating, or if you notice any irregular signs of inflammation or swelling of your gums, it may be linked to gum disease.
Do you really suffer from gum disease? If so, it could be linked to an underlying condition or symptom. In addition, look for other oral health ailments that can arise to alert you to the presence of gum tissue infection. If you only from bad breath and it is not getting better over time with proper treatment, gum disease may be the perpetrator.
Are your teeth moving around? Have you noticed any signs of extreme tooth sensitivity or teeth out of position, loose come or separating? If so, it could be a sign of gum disease. In addition, tooth recession is also a sign of infected gums. This occurs when gums are beginning to recede back away from your teeth exposing more of a tooth’s root.
