What Is Gum Disease?
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. The early stages of gum disease can be easily overlooked because the main symptom is simply red, swollen gums. We recommend consistently scheduling dental check-ups so that early signs of gum disease can be caught and addressed right away. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to periodontitis. Symptoms in this stage of gum disease may include bleeding gums, pain when chewing, sensitive teeth and bad breath. Our team offers several ways to treat gum disease depending on your needs. Your dentist can provide the best recommendations depending on the condition of your gums.
