Early Stage Gum Disease Symptoms to Make Sure You are Aware Of

Posted on 4/25/2019 by College Hill Dental
Early Stage Gum Disease Symptoms to Make Sure You are Aware OfGum disease is something that millions of Americans deal with every year. So many have this condition and do not even know it. Oftentimes, it goes unnoticed until the disease gets to the later stages, requiring more work than none at all.

It is important that you regularly have dental cleanings from our office, as well as routine exams to have the best dental health possible. We can notice gum disease when you come into the office so that you can have it taken care of sooner.

Early Signs of Gum Disease

The early stages of gum disease are known as gingivitis. This is when the plaque and other oral bacteria build up in the gum line and under the gums causing the gums to become inflamed and to bleed. The gums are usually the first indicator that something is wrong. Generally, the teeth are still firmly planted into the gums and bone, because the disease has not progressed any further.

When the disease progresses, the tissue in the gums starts to break down and this creates deep pockets in the gums that can lead to bone and tissue loss, and eventually loss of teeth. This is why when the beginning symptoms are noticed, you speak with our office to make sure that you get the deep cleaning that is needed so tooth loss is not something you're faced with later on down the road.

Start to Heal Your Mouth Today by Calling Our Office

Gingivitis is something that can be reversed with top-of-the-line oral care at home with regular brushing and flossing. Not only that, but our dental hygienists can provide deep, regular cleanings until the gums and teeth are healthier. This allows you to reduce the symptoms and remove the effects of gum disease overall. Speak with us today when you give us a call and have us take a look.
