What Are the Sign of Gum Disease?
- Posted on: Dec 23 2015
Gum disease is a very common, but very serious condition that can lead to a whole host of problems. Many people suffer from gum disease without even realizing that they have it. Gum disease can have horrible effects upon the structures that support your teeth; known as the periodontium.
If your periodontium becomes unhealthy, it can affect your gums, the covering of your tooth roots, the ligaments that attaches your teeth to your bones, and your jaw bone.
How Can you Tell if You Have Gum Disease?
If you have gum disease, you may have multiple symptoms that are not comfortable and can get worse with time. These can include the following:
- Bleeding gums
- Swollen gums
- Bad breath that doesn’t go away
- Loose teeth
- Teeth that feel like they’ve shifted
